Do you love kombucha and drinks loaded in probiotics? Then you will love this Strawberry Detox Vinegar Drink. Florida strawberries help to naturally sweeten this bright and acidic drink.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love vinegar! I can’t get enough of that acidic flavor. I will eat salt and vinegar chips until my mouth bleeds, my favorite store in Martha’s Vineyard had a vinegar tasting bar, and I love pickles in any form! My vinegar obsession is what started me on making my own kombucha. While I still love to do this, it’s time-consuming and the fermentation process can be a bit intimidating. So when I started seeing vinegar drinks in the store, I had to try some. And now I am hooked!
Making your own vinegar from scratch can take a very long time, but using store bought vinegar is so boring. I like to jazz up some my vinegar by infusing some Florida Strawberries in a some apple cider vinegar. Pickling the strawberries in a large amount of liquid creates a delicious flavored vinegar. If you’re like me you can snack on the berries afterward and keep in vinegar on hand to make some detox vinegar drinks! I don’t like adding a lot of sugar to my beverages, so strawberries are the perfect way to sweeten this vinegar; not to mention add a punch of flavor! You can make more than drinks with this vinegar, it’s also great to add to salad dressings and you can even pickle other fruits and vegetables with it!
I absolutely love winters in Florida. I can’t get enough of this warm weather; not too humid but definitely not chilly. It’s the perfect temperature for me. Florida Strawberries have also helped to brighten my winter! They are in season from November – April, I have gotten so used to being able to pick them up at the grocery store I’m not sure what to do once they’re gone! This strawberry vinegar helps to preserve those sweet berries. Preserving them gives me more time to enjoy my strawberries. I won’t be buying any of those hard, flavorless, Mexican berries that flood the market during Florida’s off season! Just store the strawberry vinegar sealed in the fridge and you can enjoy the taste of Florida Strawberries up to 3 months longer!
Winter time is definitely flu season, when most people get sick. But I’m an odd duck, I often find myself feeling under the weather in spring. That seems to be when colds hit me the most. (Perhaps my body is just mourning the end of Florida Strawberry season!) This strawberry vinegar detox drink always helps me feel better during my spring colds. The probiotics found in vinegar and the calcium found in strawberries give my body that boost it needs. In preparation for this, I am stocking up on Florida strawberries while they’re in season. And since the farms are now open for picking I may stop by U-Pick farm so I can hand pick the berries that will go into my strawberry vinegar!
