42 Below Healing Honey Sends Hope To Pope

42 Below Healing Honey Sends Hope To Pope

Thursday March 30th.

42 BELOW believes in the healing properties of New Zealand’s Manuka Honey so much they have sent four bottles of 42 BELOW Manuka Honey to the Vatican today along with a Hot Toddy recipe (picture attached).

The Egyptians used honey to heal wounds 3500 years ago and today people are consuming Manuka Honey internally and externally to heal wounds, stimulate the immune system, fight sore throats, strengthen the cardiovascular system and re-hydrate the body.

Geoff Ross, chief vodka bloke hopes the bottles will get into the right hands “My Great Aunt Betty used to whip up a Hot Toddy when I was feeling sick, as a wee fella and it always perked me up, in both body and spirit. Our 42 BELOW Hot Toddy just goes the extra mile as the healing properties in the Manuka Honey have been proven to work within and outside the body. Manuka is the best honey on the planet, we are sending it to The Pope’s top right hand man and we hope it makes him feel better.”

Manuka Honey Hot Toddy:

45 mls 42 Below Manuka Honey vodka
1 teaspoon of manuka honey or liquid honey
5 mls lemon juice
Lemon wedge
Hot water

Warm a thick glass or mug with hot water for a few seconds. Then empty, and add honey and lemon juice to a splash of hot water, and stir till the honey is dissolved. Add vodka, and fill with hot water. Squeeze in a wedge of lemon, and serve to the nearest ailing friend (who is of course over the legal drinking age).
