Around here we never really did have a spring. And suddenly it is summer now, which means that I have allergies - to what, specifically, I'm not sure. My mom told me to try honey and lemon to soothe a sore throat and hey, it works pretty well! I just eyeball my desired amount of honey into a teacup and squeeze some fresh lemon in there and add hot water. Stir and viola - a delicious hot drink to calm my poor throat.
It has also been the perfect afternoon "tea" for when I am trying to avoid caffeine.
