I know a lot of smart people and one of those people used to make this juice when they were begining to feel under the weather.  It may seem like too much work for one (really good) cup of juice, especially if you're fatigued from sickness or hungover, and it is.  So hopefully you have a juicer.  (I don't but squeezing orange quarters in my citrus press worked well.) 

Makes 1 serving. 

The Cold Killer

1 inch of ginger, peeled and sliced

about 3 oranges (I used 2 small Navels and 1 large Cara Cara) 

as many pinches of cayenne pepper as you can  

Muddle ginger slices in the bottom of a drinking glass.  Squeeze juice out of oranges and into glass, over the muddled ginger.  You'll want about one cup of juice.  Stir, stir, stir.  Strain ginger and add pinches of cayenne pepper to taste.  (I maybe did about 1/4 teaspoon. nice and spicy.)   Stir and drink up.
