Consider this a formula, not a recipe.  Want it sweeter?  Add more honey.  Want it with a little tang? Go with a whole lemon.  The point is to find a balance (and some comfort while you veg out on the common room couch).

Yes, raw honey costs a little more, but it’s also unheated and unprocessed.  Keeping it from high temperatures preserves its nutritional benefits, so if you can spare the extra change.
