Haymaker's Switchel

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 6
Categories: Non-Alcoholic Beverages

    1.00 c Brown sugar
    0.50 ts Ginger
    0.50 c Molasses
    0.75 c Vinegar
    2.00 qt Water

In haying season, farmers used to take their "nooning" (midday dinner) with them, including a jug of Switchel to wash the meal down. Although Switchel was usually straight, farmers have been known to spike it with hard cider, or even brandy which Down easters usd to say, "got the hay in the barn in half the time." Mix together, add ice and chill.
