No Added Sugar Ginger Switchel Recipe

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time10 mins

Perhaps better known by the name haymaker's punch, there are countless recipes for this deliciously refreshing drink. This vinegar-based drink essentially serves the same purpose as lemonade at a time when neither drinking water nor fresh lemons were easy to come by. It is an inexpensive and electrolyte filled way to get the benefits of apple cider vinegar (and much more tasty than undiluted vinegar!).

 2 tbsp unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
 2 tbsp Nectevia, CocoSweet+, MonkSweet+, Fructevia, Steviva Blend (or even a tiny dash of SteviaSweet!)
 2 -inch of fresh ginger root, peeled and finely minced
 4 water (or 2 cups water and 2 cups seltzer water for a spritzer!)
 0.50 of a fresh lime, juice and zest

Mix all ingredients in a large jar, shake well and place in the refrigerator overnight.


To serve, pour over ice or add seltzer water if desired.
