Switchel - a Ginger Honey Mocktail Recipe

Ginger Honey Mocktail

Switchel is delicious and refreshing. Traditionally used in Vermont as an electrolyte and energy replacer. This recipe is rich in minerals and anti-inflammatory. Though it may rejuvenate you after exercise or a long day, it's not stimulating, so it is a good refresher any time of day. Considering using this recipe as a ginger honey mocktail!

This recipe is a version from Wellness Mama. Though the ingredients list raw honey or blackstrap molasses, you might instead use maple syrup.

We recommend you always use organic ingredients when available to reduce chemical exposure for your good health.
