Daily Tonic and Hot Toddy

Daily Tonic

This invigorating beverage gives the body a gentle wake-up call. Try it either first thing in the morning or during the post-prandial afternoon dip in energy. It will stimulate lymphatic circulation, helping to cleanse the fluids of the body and reduce sinus congestion.

½ cup freshly pressed apple cider (I like Shelburne Orchards Ginger Jack for its warming, digestive kick.)
1 cup water
3 tablespoons unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (with the mother)
Juice of 1 lime

Combine in a 16-ounce glass container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Hot Toddy

A lovely, relaxing beverage to enjoy around the fire, you can customize this warming concoction to delight your guests.

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
¼ cup water
2 teaspoons raw honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Juice of 1 lemon
Optional: ½ ounce whiskey (Might I suggest Vermont’s own WhistlePig Rye.)

Mix these well in a small pot. Heat gently and drink to your health.
