I drink Hot Winter Apple Juice almost daily during the winter to help make sure my body, especially the micro-biome in my gut, is staying healthy. I like to actually go outside while I drink my beverage because it creates a very pleasant sensation of internal warmth. This recipe does a good job of smoothing out the typically somewhat objectionable taste of Apple Cider Vinegar and is actually quite delicious!
About 10 minutes, including kitchen cleanup.
Makes one individual serving.
- 1 x Red Apple (I personally prefer Pink Lady / Cripps Pink or Honeycrisp)
- 1 x Lemon (medium to large size)
- Apple Cider Vinegar (about 1/2 an oz)
- Ground Ginger
- Ground Cayenne Pepper
- A Juicer (I strongly recommend this Hurom juicer if you need a juicer)
- A Kettle or another way to heat water
1) Cut the skin off the lemon. Throw away the skin or use it for another purpose.
2) Cut the apple into pieces. Throw away or compost the apple core.
3) Juice the lemon and then the apple. Pour the juice into a large mug.
4) Add Apple Cider Vinegar. I usually add about 1/2 oz.
5) Add a dash of Ginger and a dash of Cayenne Pepper. Be sparing at first until you find out how spicy you like the drink.
6) Heat a kettle of water. Once hot, pour the hot water into the mug and stir. Add enough water to warm up the whole drink.
7) Enjoy! I like drinking mine outside in the cold weather.
