My voice is gruff, I’ve soaked through four outfits, and my tastebuds have taken a vacation. What is that strange concoction people are always raving about here in China? Ah yes! Boiled Coca-Cola, ginger, and lemon. I’ll tell you right now, I’m not a believer. I’ve just rang my husband with this tall order just so I can test how tall this tale may be.
Call me a cynic, but I think Coca-Cola may have invented this myth in the same way they invented Santa Claus.
My mother always fixed me a ginger and lemon tea sweetened with honey. Doesn’t this cocktail sound more promising without caffeine and all else that rots teeth and stomach lining? Perhaps anyone with a scientific explanation might be able to hypothesize. Why is this drink supposed to work?
In the meantime, I’ll fix myself this drink and hope to not change into another dry set of clothing.
