Secrets to Success

  • To streamline the preparation and make this drink a lot more quickly, I typically like to start by letting the water sit on the stovetop as I prepare the ingredients. Usually, in the time that it takes to bring the water to a boil, I've already finished ingredient prep, and that's how I get this done in 8 minutes or less!
  • Because vitamin C content tends to decrease in plants as you introduce high heat, I would recommend adding your lemons last. You want to bring everything to a boil, but don't want to over boil, as you do want to keep as much vitamin C in tact as possible!
