Calamansi Juice (Lime Juice)

Calamansi juice is a very popular juice in the Philippines specially in the provinces where lemon is not available and if it is, it will be so expensive.  I grew up with this calamansi juice which is usually made by our Lola Paring specially if we have coughs and colds.  Mama and Lola Paring usually make my siblings drink calamansi juice when they have sore throat specially when they are suffering from tonsillitis.

Here's a simple recipe for this refreshing and thirst quencher drink:



Ingredients :

Calamansi juice  - squeezed from 5 to 10 pieces of fruit

This is a natural home remedy for the following:

1) Cough & colds :  prepare it with warm water

2) Tonsillitis :  prepare it with warm water and 1/4 tsp of salt is added.  Sip slowly, let it stay in your throat for a while before completely gulping it.
