I have been meaning to share this recipe for a while. It is hard for me to capture in great light because I usually drink it after dinner for a treat, or as a warm cuppa while reading on the couch. It is great because it doesn't have any caffeine in it, so you are able to enjoy it before bedtime or use it as an immune booster if you feel a cold coming on. Its origins lie in Indonesia where this drink is enjoyed on cold nights or by night-shift workers.

The ground ginger is great for gastrointestinal distress, more directly motion sickness. According to, one studies findings proved that ginger was far more superior than Dramamine, a common over the counter drug used for motion sickness. Are you pregnant? Ginger has been known to reduce nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Another ingredient in traditional sarabba is white pepper. I didn't use white pepper as I didn't have it on hand, but because black pepper has many of the same properties, like settling the stomach, I used that instead.

Feel free to adjust this recipe to your liking!
