Honey Ginger Lemonade Health Tonic: So, what is a honey ginger lemonade health tonic? Well, it’s a lightly-sweetened drink brewed from fresh ginger and lemon. It’s tasty, refreshing, and my absolute favorite beverage to sip on when I’m fighting off a cold. You know how the doctor always tells you to drink plenty of fluids when you’re sick? This is the fluid I drink.
