Drinks for Singers: The Hot Lemon

drinks for singers

Last time I lost my voice, I had to swing by a friend’s house to pick up a jacket I’d left there. Her mom, having that all-famous “mom intuition,” noticed I wasn’t chirping away like I typically do, and asked what was wrong. As soon as I began croaking back to her, the answer became obvious, and she got right to work making what would become my favorite natural singer’s remedy: the hot lemon. Drink it when you’re feeling under the weather, or if you find yourself on a bearskin rug, next to a fireplace, holding an empty mug.


8 oz. of water
1 lemon
2 tbsp honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cinnamon stick


1. Boil water
2. While water is heating, combine cinnamon and honey
3. Add juice of one fresh lemon
4. Add boiling water and stir
5. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
