Here is an internal and proven anti-bacterial fighter which, when mixed with a decent shot of tequila or vodka, is a sure-fire success. Cheers!


6 cups water

1½ cups maple syrup

2/3 cup fresh lemon juice

½ cup fresh lime juice

½ tbsp fresh ginger juice

1 small whole chilli


Boil the water in a pan, then add the maple syrup. Switch off heat and pour in the lemon, lime and ginger juice (see ginger lemonade recipe) and the chilli pepper. Whisk mixture as it cools, then refrigerate.
