Switchel basic recipe

Switchel is a simple drink made from apple cider vinegar, ginger, sweetener and water. There is some debate as to whether the sweetener should be brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup or honey. I use coconut water in my recipe for it’s health benefits and because it lends a natural sweetness to the drink I am able to cut down the added sweetener drastically.

Switchel is meant to quench your thirst, so whichever sweetener you choose go easy as you don’t want a sugary drink.
