Rock Sugar Lemon Drink (Hot/ Cold)

It's the season for influenza; and Ric always join in. 

You know how these big guys when not feeling well, always reject your offer of everything that you promises to make them feel better? This is one drink Ric can be coaxed to; and enjoys it. Do remember to have enough food at hand, as this lemonade will be making the men hungry.

4 pcs    China Rock Honey Sugar
1 pcs    Lemon (wash and dry)
1/4 pcs    Ginger, thinly scraped/sliced (optional)

1. Wash and dry a clean glass bottle.
2. Wash and dry the lemon. Sliced it up.
3. Stack the honey sugar and lemon slices in the bottle. You can add in the ginger slices at this stage.
4. Leave the bottle on the kitchen table for 1-2 days, until all the rock sugar melted into a beautiful golden color. Then you store it in the fridge until you need it.

We love to make this as a warm beverage. Just 2 slices of the lemon and 4 teaspoons of the melted sugar does a cup. For that added punch, hand crushed some fresh peppermint leaves and top it all up with hot water. Now you have your very own lemon syrup!
