I’ve been hearing people talk about taking apple cider vinegar for a few years now. Many would take it first thing in the morning, but it has also been recommended to me to try before every meal. Honestly, I had a hard time keeping up with that and finding the right amount of ACV for my body. Plus, a straight shot of ACV isn’t quite so appealing.
Recently though, I started doing more research and really wanted to try taking it again, it’s so good for you, your digestion and metabolism so I researched a few different recipes, played around and came up with my very favorite morning Apple Cider Vinegar cocktail.
1 TBSP organic honey
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 dash cayenne pepper
Juice of 1 small lime or lemon
6-8oz sparkling water (plain, lemon, lime)
YOU GUYS, it’s GOOD!
Anytime I heard people talk about how they thought their morning ACV tasted good, I thought they were lying, like “come on guys, I’m not that naive.” No, I was just WRONG (I don’t say that often ;)), but in this case, it was true. If I put in a little too much cayenne it may be a bit too spicy but otherwise, it’s just delicious!!
Note: make sure your sparkling water is just that – sparkling water! There can be a natural citrus flavor, but make sure you’re not picking some sparkling water wannabe with added sugars or ingredients. You can also use still water, but I love it with the sparkling!
Are you an ACV fan? What’s your morning cocktail like?
