Family flu remedies

I want to share this amazing family flu remedy with you all. It has been passed down to me by my beautiful grandmother and the great thing about it, it rely does work. You want to make a big batch in a bottle and keep it in the fridge.

What you will need 

4-5 large lemons juiced and seeded
2-3 tablespoons honey (you want good quality honey ie Manuka 15+ or a locally farmed honey)
3-4 cloves garlic (yes I know it sound yucky but garlic is very good for your immune system)
1 piece of ginger about the size of your thumb
2-3 tablespoons brandy or cognac (optional however the alcohol does help to break a fever)

Whiz all the above in a blender and bottle. 
Do not strain the bits cause as the mixture sits it becomes more concentrate. 

How to use this goodness

3-4 tablespoons of the above mixture in 1/2 mug hot water or if you brave enough take 1-2 tablespoons neat. Take this up to 4 times in the day.
