This is one of the most simple drinks in the books (and also one of the best!). Lemons and ginger are two ingredients that work wonders for your digestive tract, liver function, and for hydration. There is no juicer needed for this recipe (though you could), but it can be handmade simply & easily. Instead of using a juicer, you can hand-juice the lemons and grate the ginger to hand-juice it, too (a nice trick I learned from Food Matters.)
I also just wrote an article about ginger and menstrual cramps if you're into that.
This is a great drink to start your morning feeling refreshed and awakened!
