How To Make Ginger Switchel

Enjoy a refreshing, antioxidant-rich drink with this ginger switchel sweetened with a hint of honey. Serve over ice for a cooling summer drink!

Preparation: 15 minutes
Total: 15 minutes



  • 1fresh ginger,(3-inch piece)
  • cupswater
  • ½cupapple cider vinegar
  • ½cuphoney,plus 2 tbsp
  • sparkling,or still water, to finish


  1. Use the side of a spoon to scrape the skin off the ginger. Cut the ginger into slices to yield about ¼ cup of sliced ginger.

  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the ginger and 2¼ cups water to a boil. Remove from the heat. Let sit for 10 minutes.

  3. For a gentler, less-spicy switchel, don’t boil the water; combine the water and ginger in a jar and let them infuse gently on the counter for a few hours.

  4. In a quart-sized glass canning jar or other lidded glass containers, combine the honey and vinegar. Add the ginger and water. Cover with a lid and shake to combine the ingredients.

  5. Cover the jar and transfer it to the fridge. Drink once cold or let the ginger infuse for up to 4 days, at which point the ginger can be strained out.

  6. Pour the switchel into a glass filled with ice. Drink it straight, or top with still or sparkling water to dilute and soften the flavor.

  7. Stir and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The longer the ginger infuses, the stronger the flavor will become. The prepared switchel will keep for 7 days in the refrigerator.
