|Squeeze the lemons. Need 1 cup.|
First you have to make Honey Wine, then you make the Cough Elixir. I'm very pleased with the taste.
Honey Wine is used as a basic liquid for medicinal wines and syrups. If prepared well it contains 12-14% alcohol.
Honey** 2.5 liters
|Stir for 15 mins at a high boil.|
**If you do not have honey, use sugar (2 kg) with 2.75 liters of water, 0.25 juice, and ½ teaspoon of yeast.
Boil the honey or sugar, water and fruit jice mixture for 15 minutes. Filter and pour into a 5 liter container (preferably glass, otherwise plastic). Leave to cool. Add the yeast.
|Yeast is added once wine is cool.|
Keep the container in a warm place and shake it gently every day. After 2-3 weeks th efermeneting process is finished. Filter the wine through a clean cloth. Store teh wine in an airtight bottle in a cool, dark place.
|Pound out Eucalyptus leaves.|
Mix and keep in a warm place, covered but not tightly closed, for 5 days. Filter and store in airtight bottles in a cool, dark place.
|Add eucalyptus only when wine is done.|
