18th Century Energy Drink – Switchel
Posted on March 07 2017
Today we prepare what would have been an 18th Century equivalent of a modern energy drink. This revitalizing drink was served to tuckered field hands and sailors.
RECIPE: Start with a half gallon of drinking water. Add half a cup of unsulfured molasses, a quarter cup of apple-cider vinegar, and a heaping tablespoon of powdered ginger. Stir very well.
