You only need five ingredients—lemon, water, honey, cayenne pepper, and ginger—for this quick home remedy that's full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and vitamin C. These wellness shots are sour in the best way: There's tartness from the lemon juice, and the ginger and cayenne add a pleasant, subtle warmth. Meanwhile, the honey balances out all that acidity and coats your throat.
