|Singer’s Tea Recipe
1 fresh ginger root ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
6 oz apple juice concentrate 1/3 C honey
Juice of 1 fresh lemon
Chop the ginger root in ¼ inch slices (rounds) using approximately 8 – 10 inches of the root. Add enough water to cover the slices in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 45 minutes.
Add cayenne, honey, lemon juice and apple juice concentrate, using relative amounts to suit your taste.
You can use Singer’s Tea to warm and soothe the throat, to cut through mucous and to stimulate the circulation in the vocal tract. It is beneficial to drink during a rehearsal or recording session.
½ tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt
1 Tbsp honey 8 oz of warm water
or in place of honey use ½ tsp clear corn syrup and 6 oz of warm water.
Gargle quietly and gently for two long, boring minutes. Do not rinse and use as often as necessary to help your dry, irritated throat.
