Summer is fast approaching, and with it, the temperatures rising. Cool off with this natural refresher. The recipe is pretty seamless — you’ll just need a little time and patience until you can sip and enjoy!

  • 1 lb brown sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cloves

Directions

  1. Boil water, and dissolve sugar.
  2. Add all ingredients, and let rest at room temperature for 24 – 36 hours covered with a towel to let breathe.
