Switchel aka sWITCHES Brew

Every self respecting hipster and foodie has gone through a kombucha phase. Kombucha, it's not the worst trend to ever come around, but to remain "hip" you have to keep it moving. 

This past summer, switchel became the next big thing to be served to cool people everywhere. Hipsters and foodies rejoiced! It happens to have some similar benefits to kombucha. So the transition was quite natural. 

Now that the temps are cooling off, switchel is seeming more appealing to me than in the summer. It can be served warm, like a hot tea. It's also believed to help fight off colds. Whether this benefit is real or imagined, I'm in to anything anti-sickness. So, here's my warm version of switchel just in time for the cooler months. 

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1/4-1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup warm/hot water
Combine the apple cider vinegar, honey, and ginger. While stirring pour in hot water. Drink it. 
*I don't consider myself to be a hipster or a foodie, but I like to keep tabs on their activities.) 

*It isn't actually purple. I just thought it looked more witchy filtered this way.
