When you’re feeling under the weather or just want to help keep colds at bay, we’ve got the perfect sip. This switchel—a fun name for a simple, fermented drink often made with apple cider vinegar—mixes up four ingredients and allows them to steep overnight. One standout addition is elderberry syrup, which boasts a dose of vitamin C in every drop, and is believed to help support the immune system.
