Vitick Maple Switchel Cocktail
We had the pleasure of hosting Jill Vitick, of Vitick's Switchel, in our tasting room this month. Jill brought in several jars of switchel, which is an old colonial farm drink. A mixture of honey, maple, or sorghum, vinegar, and other spices, switchel was the "Gatorade" of its day: a cool, refreshing energy boost after a hard day's labor.
Of course, we turn things like this into cocktails! Here is our cocktail with her maple switchel.
1 oz Mosby's Spirit
½ oz Maple Syrup Switchel
¼ oz simple syrup
¼ oz lime juice
Combine Mosby's Spirit, switchel, syrup and lime juice, and top with ginger beer. Garnish with lime peel.
