You must have opened this link expecting another cocktail or punch recipe. Well today, it’s more about digestion. I present you with THE ultimate drink that can help in your digestion process. It was invented by the Italians, which is not really surprising given the nature of their dishes!

Canarino actually means the canary bird. It was named after it simply because of its canary-yellow color. Italians have been enjoying the drink for years to help with digestion but also to soothe a cold during winter.

Since I’m a fan of Italy (who isn’t?), I’ve become familiar with the drink and I can say it has lots of benefits.

How to make it is really simple.

What you’ll need (for 1 cup):

  • The peel of 1 lemon (cleaned and dried)
  • Boiling water
  • Honey, to taste (optional)

Place the lemon peel in your cup and pour the water above it. Let it infuse and enjoy!
