WTF IS SWITCHEL?
Switchel has roots in the U.S. as the OG natural sports drink and cocktail mixer. In the 1700s, farmers sipped on switchel after a long day in the hot sun and Congress’ favorite drink was a big bowl of switchel, spiked with rum. The base of our switchel is fresh citrus and ginger, apple cider vinegar and a dash of honey. It settles the stomach, curbs a cold, and replenishes electrolytes.
The District is a tangy, refreshing lemonade with a kick. Pair it with gin or vodka, or drink it on its own, post-workout or to cure a hangover.
