Make Your Own Refreshing Summertime Drink
I heard about these drinks from Off Grid with Doug and Stacy on yt. Doug drinks Haymakers Punch all summer.
I absolutely love Braggs apple cider vinegar drinks, but as of late, can not find them. So, I took a Switchel recipe and modified it for my personal taste. I make a ginger tea with dehydrated ginger from Penzeys Spices. When cool, mix with water, Braggs Apple cider vinegar, Lakanto liquid Monkfruit sweetener and a little lime juice. Pretty darn good!
Hi every one,
I stumbled on this by mistake one day when I had a lot of homemade apple juice.
I took a quart jar and filled it most of the way with the apple juice. I then added a good big shot of Organic Braggs apple cider vinegar with the mother. I then made some ginger tea
added a quarter cup to the mix. No sugar needed to be added as the apple cider all ready has plenty of sugar, but it is not enough to really bother diabetics. WOW, very little taste of the vinegar, a sweet taste, and still plenty of value for rehydrating. Try it you'll like it
This is very similar to the medieval recipe for Sekanjabin I make every summer.
And whatever flavoring (I like fresh mint and lemon)
Put everything in a pot simmer for half hour. Strain.
Delute to taste to serve.
Very intrigued by this recipe especially as I'm currently suffering through a humid Japanese summer. Unfortunately it is a bit difficult to find any vinegar other than rice wine here. I know it would have a different flavor, but do you think rice wine vinegar would work or just be gross?
Apple cider vinegar is super easy to make if apples are readily available to you. AMD it only calls for one other ingredients besides water and apples pieces...a little sugar!
I love Switchel/Harvester's punch. I use a gallon of filtered water, 1 cup honey, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp baking soda. Tastes great, keeps me hydrated during the hot Texas summers. I used to drink Gatorade but didn't like some of the ingredients (food coloring). I can drink half a gallon of this a day. Helps me to stay alert thru meetings too!
I made the Switchel. It's fantastic. I couldn't stop drinking it. Very refreshing and drinkable.
