Red Ginger Zinger

Delicious hot or cold, this is sure to boost your energy while warding off colds and flues.

Avoid licorice if you have high blood pressure. Red raspberry is a tonic for the uterus; red clover and licorice are protective phytoestrogens; licorice has strong anti-viral properties and supports the adrenal glands; ginger warms the body, moves the blood and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

4 tsp dried red raspberry (or 4 teabags)
4 tsp dried red clover (or 4 teabags)
3 slices of ginger root, ¼ inch thick

2 can frozen peach juice
