RECIPE: Ginger Honey Switchel

  •  2 tablespoons raw honey

Switchel is a fermented drink that combines the benefits of apple cider vinegar, raw honey, and ginger for a refreshing and electrolyte drink. Thanks to vitamin C from the lemon juice and minerals, antioxidants and enzymes from the raw honey, the brew has a host of anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting benefits. Ginger has immune-boosting effects. It is also a warming and anti-nausea effect and can be helpful in reducing aching muscles and settling the stomach.
