Author Notes: Switchel is a steeped brew of apple cider vinegar, ginger, and something sweet. It is supremely refreshing, like lemonade but without having to squeeze all of the lemons. And it’s a much less austere way to get apple cider vinegar, which purportedly has about one million health benefits, into your system than a bracing shot of the stuff.Caroline Lange

Serves: 4

  • 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (I like the unfiltered stuff best, like Bragg’s)
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced—as much as you want. I usually slice up a piece the size of my thumb.
  • 4 cups water
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large jar. Shake to combine thoroughly, then refrigerate at least 12 hours. To serve, strain into glasses filled with ice—or heat it and drink as a tea.
