Hot Mint-and-Lemon Drink

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
This soothing herbal drink is thought to calm an upset stomach and reduce stress.

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves

How to Make It

  1. Carefully remove rind from lemon using a vegetable peeler, making sure not to get any of the white pithy part of the rind, and reserve lemon for another use.
