Inspired by this recipe



  • 1 gallon water
  • 1-1/2 cups molasses
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger


  1. Combine all ingredients

Additional Notes

Per The Old Farmer's Almanac, you could replace the molasses with maple syrup, honey, or another sweetener or just cut back on the sweetener. Start with less—as you can always add more. Switchel shouldn’t coat your mouth; it should taste refreshing. Another idea is to add a teaspoon of fresh lemon or lime juice for zing.
