Get your daily ACV in with this Homemade Strawberry Peach Drinking Vinegar. Not only is it healthy, but it actually makes drinking vinegar taste good!
Drinking vinegar is totally one of those health crazes that I have been skeptical of for months now. I mean, it just doesn’t sound all that good. But over the past year, I have found that incorporating apple cider vinegar into my day-to-day routine almost always tends to result in some improvement with my acid reflux symptoms (because contrary to popular belief, most people with acid reflux symptoms actually suffer from too little stomach acid production, not too much).
As much fun as taking shots of apple cider vinegar and chasing it with water can be, the world has thankfully come up with a better way. I tried the Suja peach ginger drinking vinegar a few weeks ago, and have been trying their other flavors ever since. They sure make drinking vinegar taste a whooooole lot better!
The problems with the Suja drinking vinegars are that you cannot find them everywhere and they get kind of pricey. So I got to thinking, “I could totally make something like this at home.” And then I did. And when it actually tasted good, I knew I had to share it with all of you.
I have found that the main ingredients you need for all drinking vinegars are filtered water, apple cider vinegar, and some type of sweetener. From there, you can have some fun and experiment with various fruits and spices. I was not feeling too spicy with the pregnancy and all, but I was definitely on board with lots of in-season fruit.
