Yield: Approximately 1.5 gallons
Time: 20-25 minutes
6 -quart pot
1 cup peeled ginger
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup maple syrup
A pinch Celtic sea salt (which contains more trace minerals than normal table salt)
Fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons sparkling mineral water
Collect and prep your ingredients. First, you'll want to wash and peel all of your ginger. Then, pop that into your 6-quart pot filled almost to the top with water.
Boil and simmer. Next, bring your ginger water to a boil and then let it simmer for 20 minutes.
Add in your other ingredients. While your ginger water is simmering, add your apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and maple syrup to a large jar—this is where you'll pour your ginger water when it's ready, so make sure it's large enough to hold all of the liquid.
Pour and serve. After the 20 minutes is up, pour your ginger water into the large jar housing the rest of your ingredients, and give it a good stir. Finally, serve your natural electrolyte drink over ice topped with a few tablespoons of mineral water (you can eyeball this part), fresh herbs, and maybe even sliced fruit of your choice. Sorlie uses fresh mint in her recipe, but you can also use rosemary, basil, lavender, or any other herb you prefer. If you feel inspired, you can even pop a few fresh strawberry slices or lemon peel on top.
