Turmeric Ginger Switchel
Switchels are the latest in healthy beverages, yet they have been around for centuries. In Ancient Greece, switchels were made from oxymels, honey and vinegar elixirs. By the 18th century, they made their way to America and were known as "Haymaker's punch", often drunk by farmers to stay cool and hydrated. These drinking vinegars are now making a comeback along with their close relative, the shrub.
