Trish's Citro Booster


Citro Booster Copycat

This is my new favourite drink for when I am under the weather.  A friend of mine suggested I try this drink at Balzacs in Stratford and I am in love!  This is my copycat version of the hot lemon drink and it is so easy to make up.  I like to get a little fancy and add a peel from the lemon for a little extra zing. This drink will make you feel warm and cozy while it helps to fight away the common cold. I recommend enjoying your citro booster with a fuzzy blanket and a good book!

I hope you enjoy and can make the recipe your very own.
