Healthy Living Thirsty Thursday: Tart Cherry Hot Toddy

Are you ready for a really interesting drink that will knock your socks off?

It’s no secret that I’ve been drinking apple cider vinegar (ACV) shots for a while now. And it’s also no secret that I sprained my ankle and have been doing everything in my power to heal quickly.

I’ve been focusing on an anti-inflammatory diet consisting of lots of fruits and veggies, as well as some that are known for anti-inflammatory purposes: Tart cherry juice, cinnamon and ginger.

Naturally, I combined ACV with the tart cherry juice and ginger. And since hot toddies were originally imbibed to help people get well, I decided to heat up my concoction before drinking.

Healthy Living Thirsty Thursday: Tart Cherry Hot Toddy

Ingredients

  • 1 inch cube of ginger
  • 12 oz tart cherry juice (could use ginger flavored Cheribundi and forgo infusing the juice)
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 oz ACV (depends how tart / strong you want it)
  • 1 t honey

Instructions

  1. Slice the cube of ginger into smaller pieces and put into a mug with the cherry juice.
  2. Heat in the microwave for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Let sit for 10-15 minutes (until the ginger flavor has been soaked up — I'm sure there's a better way of doing this, but this is what I did).
  4. Remove the ginger if desired.
  5. Add remaining ingredients, and warm in the microwave if necessary.
