Switchel Cider Ginger Fizz

gingerfizz1

Nothing says autumn quite like apple cider! While in New Hampshire for work last week we stopped at a liquor store and I came across this Switchel Cider Vodka made by Boggy Meadow Farm and I knew I had to try it. Sounds so delicious, right!?

Boggy Meadow is a dairy farm and mostly known for their funky cheeses, but owners Stephanie Cabot and Marcus Lovell Smith wanted to expand their operations and decided on exploring switchel, a drink made with apple cider vinegar that dates all the way back to colonial times. Tradition has it that farmers would sip this refreshing drink while working the harvest. The original recipe combines the flavors of ginger, apple cider vinegar and boiled cider. With this as a starting point, they set to work to capture the essence of times past in a switchel cider vodka.

With my love for ginger I knew I had to mix this cider vodka into a spicy cocktail that smells and tastes just like fall. The candied apple slices I used for a garnish (which, my boyfriend said looked like potato wedges lol….but he’s got a point) actually taste great floating in the cocktail too (extra apple & cinnamon … yum!). I also have a feeling this switchel vodka would be GREAT with warm apple cider…that’s next on the list!

  • MAN. This past month has been pretty dreamy. Visiting friends and family back east and then them visiting me here in Colorado…It’s been a pretty amazing summer so far. Can’t complain.

Time to get busy and back to work, but I’ll still be posting photos from the hikes, camps, and adventures because it’s good to have a balance of both life and work, not just online but offline too.

  • Stopped at Steam before dropping on @danielle_conyers at the airport. Spicy chai tea lattes can soothe the soul when one of your favorite people leaves.
