Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

I keep reading information over and over again touting the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar. What is also interesting is the more I ask about it, the more I have friends say that they are thinking about trying it too. It seems like several of us are becoming more conscious and concerned with trying to take control of our own health in a more natural way. Another common comment I have been hearing people say is that they have heard about it and that their grandparents swore by drinking it every day. There must be something to this

I discovered it when looking for natural ways to help with reflux. I have had an ongoing battle with this (which is annoying) and I can’t stand the thought of taking the prescribed medicine. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for modern medicine when needed but in conjunction with some natural help too if possible. I tried taking the medicines, they absolutely make me feel worse. So, I was really stuck.

That was when I found that Apple Cider Vinegar has a seemingly endless list of things that it is supposed to help with. For example: reflux, weight loss, digestion, detox…I could really go on and on.

I had no clue what I was doing and started taking 2 Tbsp like a shot during times of desperation with my reflux. I have since come to find out that drinking it straight is a BIG no-no. Go figure. I have tried several different combinations and recipes and I have finally found a favorite! And trust me, there were some bad ones too. You may think the shot was terrible, but at least it got it over with faster. Some of these made my teeth started hurting and I was cringing even thinking about it. This particular mix is one that I am actually looking forward to (which seems crazy but I’ll take it).

It’s packed with good things! I use local honey on purpose in an attempt to control my allergies and some lemon juice for extra detox benefits.

Apple Cider Vinegar Drink


1.) 1/2 oz cherries or other berries in season

2.) 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar (with “the mother”)

3.) 1 tsp Honey (I use local honey for the allergy benefits)

4.) Squirt of lemon juice

5.) Ice

6.) Water


Place cherries or berries in the bottom of your cup. Add the ACV, honey and lemon juice and take a spoon and mash it all together. Add water and ice.

*feel free to experiment with different amounts of berries and ACV. I wanted this to pack a punch, which is why it has the 2 Tbsp in one drink.  You could totally add more fruit!
