Everyone should have a bottle of this in the larder to help ward off winter bugs  – it’s delicious.  And when summer comes around again, you can mix this with Club Soda and a slice of lemon for an instant, refreshing spritzer or drink it “straight” just mixed with water.

But back to frosty nights and nippy days… The New Zealand Honey Company have put Lemon Juice, Manuka Honey, a touch of Apple Cider Vinegar and Vitamin C into this lovely tasting cordial which tastes as close to home made as you can get.  So next time a sore throat lurks or you feel like a healthy hot toddy at the end of the day, it’s your instant hot lemon and honey straight from the cupboard. Voila!

And on the right, blackcurrant fans will like the Blackcurrant and Manuka Honey version, packed with antioxidants.
