So, the old-timers remedied that with a drink called Switzle (or Haymaker's Punch or Switchel) that the women made and had on hand for the workers. It could be considered the original Gatorade!
Switzle is generally made of water, vinegar, sweetener (sugar, molasses, maple syrup, or honey), and ginger powder. We make ours with filtered water, organic apple cider vinegar, organic raw honey, fresh organic ginger, organic lemon, organic strawberry, and organic hibiscus flower.
Switzle may be served warmed, chilled, or at room temperature. Just shake well and enjoy!
Switzle tastes delicious any time, but is especially good after being out in the hot sun. Kids love the taste, and it’s so good for them after playing sports or just playing hard outside.
The ingredients in Switzle may also help calm an upset stomach, soothe a sore throat, or even hydrate adults who may have indulged in a few too many alcoholic beverages!
While Switzle is delicious on a hot day, it’s equally yummy served warmed in a big mug when the weather is chilly.
No matter how you enjoy it, Switzle is a versatile, delicious drink that can be enjoyed by everyone!
Note: Switzle is currently available at our local events, and will be on our website soon.
