Cajun Cough Syrup

Here is my mom’s recipe for Cajun Cough Syrup (aka Dragon Juice).

I also like to add a drop of Oregano essential oil. Other good oils are: Lemon and OnGaurd (aka Thieves Oil). But I only add those if I am taking it immediately. If they are left in a large batch they get much more potent over time and can be overpowering.

I make a large batch and store it on the cupboard in a honey bottle. No need to refrigerate. Serving size is about a 1/4 cup (~57g), or a shot glass. Take as often as needed.

Great for colds and coughs. Half the fun is swallowing it down. The faster the better, in my opinion.

1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tbsp honey (12g)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (15g)
2 tbsp hot water (30g)

Shake well and serve warm.
