The really cool thing about this drink is its numerous health benefits, but first, let me post the recipe.
Lemonade with a Kick
- a quart mason jar
- 1 cup glass measuring cup or something comparable
- 2 TBSP of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar*
*It is not necessary to buy Bragg's. There are other brands out there, but I prefer the taste of Bragg's the best. Also, it is imperative that whatever brand you choose, it is raw and unfiltered. You WANT to have the "mother" or cob-web like stuff floating around in there because that is what contains all of the powerful enzymes.
In order for the honey to blend well in the lemonade, I add the honey to warm water first. I keep a tea kettle on the stove so I heat up the water in the kettle, then pour 1/2 cup of warm water into a 1 cup measuring cup. Then I add two tablespoons of honey to the warm water and mix well till the honey is completely dissolved.
You can either drink this warm, like tea, or cold with ice. If you add ice, be sure to shake the "lemonade" well prior to adding the ice.
Oh, and you just absolutely have to drink this out of a quart mason jar, because that makes it taste so much better! Ha ha!

It has many uses and many benefits. Rather than reinventing the wheel, I highly recommend the following two sites that are loaded with excellent information about this topic.
Another great use is when my dog gets ear infections. I just mix 1 part ACV with 1 part water and a few drops of tea tree oil into a small spray bottle and squirt the mixture into his ear several times a day. He just loves that!! LOL!
With summer just around the corner, I highly recommend trying Lemonade with a Kick! It's very refreshing and healthy. Enjoy!
