Raspberry Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade ~ recipe

Alright, now that you’ve mastered the last recipe, this one will be a cinch!  It’s even better than the regular apple cider vinegar (acv) lemonade recipe I posted previously.

Now I’d love to show you a picture, but alas, I cannot.  First, and foremost, it’s my fault really.  I always forget when I make it to take a picture in all it’s glory.  Sitting there in that pretty pitcher waiting for the first glass to be poured.  And, second, when I do remember :/  It’s usually already gone and we’re on to the next pitcher.

Vicious cycle I know.  But trust that it’s delish!

Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade ~ recipe

Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade ~ recipe

I know what your thinking.  What?!  Apple Cider VINEGAR lemonade!  Well it’s true, you didn’t misread it.  There are many holistic remedial attributes to apple cider vinegar.  (Watch for my post on how it helps horses!)

I must declare it’s better than you think, and there is value to it.  If you are what you eat, then you are what you drink too.

Now, I’ve given this much thought on the contributions to life this type of vinegar provides.  Having grown up watching my Great Grandmother drink 2 tablespoons daily, I tend to believe there is something to this.  She lived to be 104!  So I think she knew something of the benefits too.

Ya, you read that right.

I can remember as a child that if whatever ailed you wasn’t cured by one of these, you were surely gunna die.  haha Just kidding.  But I do remember that it seemed to be good for whatever ailed you.  Sore muscles to a stuffy nose.

So this may not be, just what the doctor ordered. But, here’s the recipe anyway.

Cowboy Punch

Ok, I have to say this recipe has been around the family a few 100 times.  So I’m sure they won’t mind if I share it here.  If they do get upset, tell ’em you heard it here first! 😛

Now there are parties and then there are Cowboy Parties.  Cowboy parties, can and have been known to last for days.  Only stopping the fun to take care of the ranch chores and then returning to where you left off.  Now, IIIII would NEVER do something like that, but I have heard about it. 😛

Ok, Okay!  You caught me off guard and twisted my arm.  I admit, I have attended a few.  Haha… And thrown a few too!

Here is one of the drinks that has been served at a number of them.

Ranch Hot Cocoa Mix

This is one of my little guys favorites!  He wanted me to be sure and put this in there for all the “little cowboys” like him.  He says it’s the greatest! 😀

This stores very well and is a recipe for bulk.  However, it never lasts very long around here so I can’t give you an exact shelf life. 

  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 2 cups Powdered Creamer
  • 2 cups Non-Fat Dry Milk
  • 1 1/3 cups Unsweetened Cocoa

     Mix all together until free of lumps.  Store in airtight container.  Use 2 heaping teaspoons to a cup of hot water.

     To complete the drink add mini-marshmallows to the top before serving.
