Ginger Switchel

¼ cup mild honey
¼ cup raw apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon dried ground ginger
1 inch fresh ginger root, sliced into coins and smacked with a meat tenderizer or heavy pan to release the juices
fresh, cold water

Add the honey, raw apple cider vinegar, and ground ginger to the bottom of a quart jar or 1 liter jar that has a tight fitting lid. Whisk until thoroughly combined, add the fresh ginger coins, then fill the jar with fresh, cold water up to within ¼-inch of the top and fix the lid in place. Shake and invert a few times before stashing in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours but as long as 36 hours. Remove the pieces of ginger root from the jars and serve the Ginger Switchel over ice or with plain seltzer or club soda.
