I’ve been struggling with a cold/flu virus this week. Coincidentally, an internet contact sent me some Pok Pok Drinking Vinegars based on my recent explorations of non-alcoholic beverages.
Pok Pok Som full strength drinking vinegar is a sweet and tart fruit and vinegar based concentrate that makes a refreshing all natural soda alternative or a unique cocktail mixer. Drinking vinegar for health reasons is an age-old practice in many cultures around the world including here in the USA, dating back to colonial times when “shrubs” were a common tonic. While Pok Pok does not make any claims as to the health benefits of this product, it is a delicious and refreshing drink with a nice tartness coming from the vinegar and concentrated flavors of fruit and aromatics. These vinegars can be served with soda water as a soft drink and at full strength as a mixer in cocktails.
The honey drinking vinegar has a very strong honey flavor and strong sweet-tart character, making it perfect for a toddy.
This is the tastiest therapeutic beverage I’ve come up with!
Feeling better already, just thinking about having another one later today.
