Refreshing, tart, and sweet: my family has been enjoying this simple drink concentrate for a few years. It combines two traditional superfoods, raw honey and raw apple cider vinegar, which combine to make an uber-healthy, wonderfully tasty drink.
I hesitated to share this recipe, because it is so simple and easy to make. But after having multiple friends ask me for the recipe, I figured my blog readers would like to know it, too.
Superfood Soda Concentrate
equal parts of
raw honey, preferably from local beekeepers
If your raw honey has become thick and crystallized, warm it up by placing the jar in a bowl of warm water. This will allow the honey to become thin and pourable.
Combine equal parts of raw honey and apple cider vinegar. My favorite way to do this involves no measuring and minimal cleanup: Use a half-full jar of raw apple cider vinegar. Place a funnel into the jar, and pour in the honey through the funnel. It may take a couple refills of the funnel depending on the size of your vinegar jar and funnel. Be patient, as the thick honey can take quite awhile to drip through the funnel; I like to find something else to do in the meantime.
Put a tight-fitting lid on the jar. Over the next day or two, periodically invert the jar and swish the contents around. It can take awhile for the honey to fully dissolve into the vinegar.
Once the honey has been fully dissolved in the vinegar, the soda concentrate is ready!
To make a drink, simply pour some of the concentrate into a glass, add your favorite sparkling mineral water, and stir. The amount of concentrate to use will vary depending on your preference. I like to use roughly 3-4 Tb of concentrate per one cup of fizzy water.
If you don't like fizzy drinks, this same concentrate can be combined with plain, filtered water for a nice electrolyte drink. When using plain water, I use less of the concentrate, about 1-2 Tb per cup of water.
