Ginger Drink

I never use to have ginger drink right form childhood even after knowing the benefits of having ginger drink. But finally only when we face some problems we suddenly search of a remedy that to a natural remedy to relieve us or keep away from the problem.

This ginger drink helps and relives indigestion, cold. Ginger Drink is prepared in few version, but this one is the simple and good for kids, which is mild spicy. It’s not good to have this drink often, one can have it once in a month, perfect for adults to have in empty stomach and good for kids after a milk or coffee in morning. Also it’s enough for one to consume only ¼ cup (100 ml), so it’s good to have on weekends.
