    I’ve made a similar drink myself for digestion issues. Some health food stores sell similar commercially bottled concoctions of ginger, honey and apple cider vinegar. Very healthy stuff. Traditionally used for digestion issues, respiratory issues, and all-around immune-boosting.

    Love the video. 😉

    Ah. Thank you, Kent. I should have checked that out better. I’ll add a note to the post.

    I’ll have to give that ginger drink a try. I’m a fan of ginger ale. Canada Dry forever, but lately, Hansen’s.

    Phasing out pennies would be a good idea. Canada is. I recall someplace else did already, I think — round to the nearest 5 cents.

    The Switchel mentioned is what I call “Colonial Gatorade”. I make it quite frequently during the summer and it is very refreshing.
    Comparing it to Gatorade (or any other of those so-called sports drinks, which are loaded with sugar) is not for its taste (which takes a bit of getting used to) nor for the appearance (if molasses is used as sweetener, as in the original recipes, it looks kinda like brown water) but rather for its function: It rehydrates (water) and replenishes the electrolytes lost while sweating (vinegar); you could add a dash of salt to increase the latter, although I doubt it would help the taste any ;-).
    Best kept cool in a fridge or a stoneware jug right where you work so can take a swig frequently.
