Haymaker's Punch- Refreshing and Delicious!

Posted on 05 June 2018

Hello Summer! It is getting warm out and there are so many fun outdoor things to do and outdoor chores to get done. You will need a refreshing drink to cool you down.

Switchel, also known as Haymaker’s Punch, is a refreshing drink made from just a few ingredients—apple cider vinegar, ginger, water, and a sweetener. It was how colonial farmers quenched their thirst out in the hot fields. It is often referred to as Haymaker’s Punch because it was often drunk while haying the fields— think of it as nature’s sport drink!

It will give you an energizing electrolyte boost better than any pricey energy drink or soda. All the ingredients (except water, of course) are actually sources of the electrolyte potassium. And, of course, the apple cider vinegar has so many health benefits.
