Best drink for 2011!

4 01 2012

During Christmas in Chengdu I had the chance to taste a new easy drink: warm coke with ginger. Since then, once back home, I have been making it almost every evening!!! It is a little cheating, since I tried the drink so close to the end of the year and actually made it mainly these extremely cold days, in 2012.. but who cares!

I love ginger, also it is very good for my rheumatoid arthritis.

Food and herbs according to Chinese medicine and traditions categorize as cold or warm, according to the effect they have on the body. Rheumatoid arthritis for Chinese medicine can present different aspects: factors of Wind, Cold, Heat, and/or Dampness. According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor I visited more often, I am affected by cold factors.

Ginger is a warming food aliment.

Boiled coke and ginger!

..and I see it is also good to fight a cold..

I haven’t heard of this drink until now, but I’m definitely going to give it a try. I could definitely use another cold fighter in my arsenal as I have 6 children and a husband, all who love getting sick in the Winter months!
