    1. No, definitely not mandatory. Honey has many health benefits, but if you can’t use it (or if you don’t like it), ginger and lemon alone offer plenty of benefits and taste great 🙂

  1. Thank you for this recipe! I simmered the ginger and cinnamon in 2 cups of water then added some cool water so it was drinkable right away for my daughter. I hope it does the trick! It certainly smells nice.
