My mother in law lives in Canada,she’s got a bad cough,once her daughter was in n.z and I don’t know from where she bought a bottle of Ginger Syrup and that cured her cough. Can you please tell me where can I buy this n.z made ginger syrup.

I don’t know exactly what ginger syrup your mother-in-law tried.  A ginger and lemon drink has good health promoting properties and when sweetened with honey you have a soothing drink that helps relieve cold and flu symptoms.
