Ginger Cider Switchel Recipe
This immune-boosting switchel recipe is perfect for keeping you healthy during cold and flu season.
Place all ingredients in a pitcher or jar and stir to combine. Cover and leave out on the counter overnight (about 12 hours).
To drink, pour over ice and top with seltzer water, if desired. Store the remaining switchel in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 5 days.
Since it has to steep overnight, it’s best to make a large pitcher when you first start feeling sick, that way you always have some on hand. Simply try pouring it over ice and topping it off with a little carbonated water to give it a soda-like fizz.
Although it’s good year-round, during cold and flu season try drinking a glass daily before you get sick or every two to three hours if you feel a cold coming on, and your immune system will be revved up in no time.
