Good Girl Moonshine with a Twist Featured Image

Earlier this week a friend of mine mentioned “Good Girl Moonshine” on facebook and I had never heard of that before.    Honestly,

[Tweet “My first thought was, Give me the real stuff, I want bad girl moonshine!”]

but I was intrigued so I looked it up.  I found this recipe, and when I saw that it was made with apple cider vinegar I thought “Gross!”  Then it occurred to me how I have fantasized about drinking my homemade salad dressing straight.

For the original “base” recipe. you will need:

I gave the recipe a try using seltzer water with my Sodastream.  I am in LOVE with my Sodastream. Last year I was doing a bible study and decided to donate a few items that I really LOVED and didn’t want to part with.  I donated the Sodastream.  I held out for about 6 months until I caved and had to get another.  I hope whoever got my old one loves it as much as I do!

Anyway, I made the drink and it was DELICIOUS, but I’m always trying to improve things to make them EVEN better.  

I added the following 3 ingredients.

The cinnamon with the ginger, apple cider vinegar and seltzer water makes this taste like a Yankee Candle, in a GOOD WAY!

Not only does it taste amazing, this drink is great for:

  • Stabilizing blood sugar levels
  • Curbing sugar cravings
  • Soothing heartburn and stomach distress
  • Aiding digestion
  • Boosting heart health
  • Increasing circulation
  • Fighting inflammation  

Look how gorgeous it is!  I have a warning and a tip to save your teeth. *Apple cider vinegar can easily eat away at tooth enamel because of the high acid content.  Make sure you drink this with a straw and be aware that you are not swishing it around in your mouth!!
