while the sun shines Silver Plume’s DRAM Apothecary recently debuted switchel—a drinking vinegar (theirs is apple cider-based)—and a ginger switchel soda, both of which are sweetened with Western Slope honey. Switchel dates back to Colonial times, when it was consumed as a restorative by farmers during haying season. It’s a refreshing alternative to sugary electrolyte replacements and also makes for a great marinade and vinaigrette base. Try the soda straight-up or as a sophisticated mixer for whiskey.
