This is Dana's favorite Fire Cider recipe, probably because he came up with it! We think this drink is a perfect complement to the warm weather we are finally starting to have here in New England. In fact, switchel is basically old-fashioned Gatorade that farmers drank to stay hydrated:
(Dana buys hispomegranate molasses from Tran's World Food Market in Hadley, MA)
Ingredients to make one cup of Switchel concentrate:
- ¼ cup of Fire Cider
- 3 tablespoons fresh ginger juice
- 3 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
Shake well to combine all ingredients.
Serve about 2-4 ounces of concentrate over ice, top with soda water to make a pint. Serve with a wedge of lime or a sprinkling of Pomegranate arils.
Store leftover Switchel mix in the refrigerator.
