  • 1 cup orange juice or enough to fill your favorite cup
  • 1/2 lime juice only
  • zest from half an orange
  • 1 tsp chili minced. serrano for mild, cayenne for hot *
  • 1 tsp brown sugar I tend to heap it


  • Mince your chili of choice (or ginger, see notes). Zest the orange. Add all the ingredients to a small saucepan. Heat on medium heat until sugar has dissolved, while stirring.
  • Strain into your favorite cup, and serve warm.


* If you've got a really bad sore throat, I would recommend changing the chili with ginger. Use 1 tsp minced fresh ginger instead, and you will still get that spicy kick!
