myFresha-licious: Salabat (Ginger Drink)

Salabat (Ginger Drink)

Salabat or ginger drink is considered as an herbal drink that is always recommended by our grandparents and parents as effective remedies against the common colds and flu and also it has a soothing effect on the sorethroat.

I made this for Frederick since his tonsils are again inflamed.  It is relieving, however, he doesn’t like the taste of the ginger despite the amount of honey I put on his salabat.

Anyway, for those who can take the taste, this is the recipe:


Ginger, sliced and crushed – 1 thumbsize

Honey – 2 tbsp

Water – 300 ml



1. Combine water and ginger in a pot and bring to a boil.

2.  let it boil for 10-15 minutes then reduce the fire and let it simmer

3.  Transfer into 2 cups and stir in 1 tbsp of honey for each cup
