Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups filtered water
  • 2” piece of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey (or to your desired sweetness)


  1. With a box grater, grate the ginger on the side with the largest holes.
  2. In a small saucepan, add the water, grated ginger, lemon juice and honey. Bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the lemon ginger tonic into a blender and blend on low until frothy. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!


  • For a recipe shortcut, you could add the ginger knob, honey and lemon to a blender, along with hot water. Blend until frothy. 
  • You could make a big batch of this and store in the fridge for a couple of days. Reheat one serving at a time on the stovetop when ready to serve.
