I have a riddle for you: What is a drink that’s good for recovering from hangovers but also great for making cocktails? Nope, it’s not magic nor is it a secret potion. Out of guesses? Well, I hope you’re sitting down because it’s made of only two main ingredients: honey and lemon. Shocker, right?
Now that you’ve picked up your jaw from the floor, enter: Honey Lemon. Honey Lemon is actually from Korea, where the honey — 100-percent pure, in case you were wondering — is sourced from the Chiak Mountain.
The drink itself is expectedly sweet (but not too much), with just the right kick of lemon. Honey has this very distinct flavor that hits you right away — sometimes it tastes weird at first contact, but that fades away very quickly. When chilled, it makes for a very refreshing beverage, perfect for when your head is pounding from last night’s sins.
If you’re wondering how this drink actually helps rid of your hangover, well, here’s the tea: the fructose content in honey helps break down alcohol in the body, while lemon juice helps ease headaches by making the body more alkaline. Simple.
