Switchel - American heritage beverage from Vermont

At Prospect restaurant in Brooklyn they serve up this variation of the vaguely sweet, vinegar-based refresher as a mixer—it pairs best with rum—and the beverage's enigmatic blend of refined ginger, apple cider vinegar, Vermont maple syrup and water tastes like the perfect seasonal compliment to a Thanksgiving meal.

Founded by Garret Riffle and Ely Key at Borderline Farm in South Londonderry, Switchel the brand was born from a recipe originally created by farmers to quench their thirst during hay harvest season, now produced with all local ingredients and bottled in craft mason jars.

The restaurant also recommends Switchel, which is a bit like Shrub, a revived beverage recently featured in foodwatching, straight up or in a cocktail and with one of their burgers!
