  • Summary

    The sweet-and-sour soft drink known as switchel, made with fresh ginger and a dash of cider vinegar, was a popular thirst-quencher among harvest field workers in 19th-century New England. We're spinning our homemade switchel in a resolutely grown-up direction by adding in rye whiskey.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup apple-cider vinegar, preferably unfiltered
    • 1/3 cup sorghum syrup (available at natural-food stores)
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger (from a 2-inch piece)
    • 24 ounces rye whiskey
