Switchel originated in the Caribbean and has been a popular summer drink for 300 years. Called, “Haymaker’s Punch,” by farmers, it is popular at harvest time, but also has a drink for celebrations. Enjoy instead of alcohol and you will remain healthy and happy at social events. It contains ginger, apple cider vinegar, and lemon which all provide a powerful detox punch.
