Orange-Thyme Switchel Recipe

Before diet soda, frappuccinos, or kombucha, there was switchel. The fizzy, tangy drink—traditionally made with apple cider vinegar, sweetener, and water—has been quenching thirst for decades; some say it dates back to all the way to colonial days.  We like livening ours up with orange juice, thyme, and a little sparkling water. Try sipping it as a nonalchoholic digestif or to settle an upset stomach.

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
