Haymaker’s Ginger Switchel

This ginger punch is flavored with lemon juice and sweetened with honey and molasses for a refreshing drink that quenches even the fiercest summer thirst.

Serves 8

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 150 min.

Ingredients

  • 9 cups water, divided
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup honey, or pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • Fresh berries, mint sprigs or lemon slices for garnish

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine 3 cups water with ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let infuse for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Strain the ginger-infused water into a pitcher, pressing on the ginger solids to extract all the liquid. Add honey (or maple syrup) and molasses; stir until dissolved. Stir in lemon juice, vinegar and the remaining 6 cups water. Chill until very cold, at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Stir the punch and serve in tall glasses over ice cubes. Garnish with berries, mint sprigs or lemon slices, if desired.
