When I stop at the store on my way home from work, I often text my family and ask them if they need anything. Imagine my surprise when My Faithful Assistant asked for organic apple cider vinegar. ??? What? Why? Because apparently, in addition to teaching Spanish, my son’s Spanish teacher was also extolling the health benefits of apple cider vinegar. Alrighty then.
Fast forward a few months and my husband, thanks to a health conscious co-worker, was also on the apple cider vinegar bandwagon. We have a big bottle of the stuff and it goes in tea with honey and lemon, juice, water, and recently, we concocted this delightful refreshing spritzer.
DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Spritzer
1/2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar – use more if you want!
4 ounces 100% fruit juice – We used pomegranate juice
8 ounces seltzer
- Combine the apple cider vinegar and juice in a tall glass.
- Add ice then seltzer.
- Stir gently and enjoy!
Now apple cider vinegar is an acquired taste so I would recommend you ease yourself into this. Get used to the bite of the vinegar and the tingle in your throat and sinuses.
I have no idea if any of the health benefits claimed are actually real benefits backed by science. You can read the claims and decide for yourself what you want to believe. We drink it more often when I’m feeling a cold coming on because I find it soothes my sore throat.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
