I am so excited to share with you this hot beverage that is bursting with flavor.  I discovered this drink in a laid back surf town in Costa Rica.  For those of you looking for adventure,  you should check out Santa Teresa. Located 150 km from San Jose on the Nicoya Peninsula, its stunning views and friendly locals will have you adjusted to the Pura Vida lifestyle. 

This drink caught me by surprise.  I had heard about hot water and lemon for a really long time and never did it! I mean, I love coffee and what could possibly be better or replace my morning cup of goodness. Well, I am still a Coffee junkie.  Yikes. did I just say that!  But I do drink this every morning before my coffee.   Not only does it taste great you get the health benefits of lemon and ginger root.  Ginger root is a natural anti-inflammatory with high levels of anti-oxidants and lemons are an excellence source of vitamin C.  This power packed drink helps my body recover from skiing and working out.
