switchel

Switchel, switzel, swizzle, ginger-water or haymaker’s punch is a drink made of water mixed with vinegar and seasoned with ginger. It is usually sweetened with honey or maple syrup.
I like it, simple as that. So, here’s my recipe….

500ml water
Fresh Ginger – 2x 2inch pieces
80ml – Apple cider vinegar
50g [2 Tblsp] – Manuka Honey
Juice of one Citrus

Bring to boil 500 mil water with 2 nice pieces of loosely cut peeled ginger.
Let cool to below 30 degrees (to prevent killing all the good bacteria).
Combine ginger water with vinegar, honey and juice.
Shake well and leave in sealed bottle overnight, strain, then refrigerate.

To serve: 40ml in a glass topped up with sparking water.
