Servings 1 Person


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly micro grated or crushed ginger
  • 2 tsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ashwagandha
  • A pinch of cayenne
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • A tiny crack of black pepper
  • 2 tbsp freshly sweezed lemon juice
  • (optional) a few drops hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil


  • To a small saucepan, add water, ginger, molasses, turmeric, ashwagandha, cayenne, cinnamon and pepper and place over medium heat. Gently simmer for three minutes, whisking occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and strain if you wish - I like chewing through the ginger because it's so good for the gut. Add lemon juice and CBD oil, if using, then adjust with more cayenne if you like it spicy or a bit of honey or maple syrup if you want to tone down the fire.
