I love a good shot in the morning.  Yes nothing feels better than waking up and kicking back a shot.  Yup thats the way I start my morning…don’t you?

Ha gotcha.  Yes my shot is of apple cider vinegar.  It is a little bit of a bite so be warned your first shot of it.  Aren’t all shots a little difficult to kick back though.  I will choke this one down over the others any day!  If you still can’t seem to get over the taste then you are in luck because I have a few alternative ways to get in your morning shot!
In the mean time please check out the benefits of ACV here : Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits
My recipes are inspired by Bragg’s own bottled versions.  Lets not say inspired…heck they are pretty much the same ingredients but my ratios.
If you don’t want to make it on your own there are bottled versions of my two personal favorites: Ginger Spice
and Limeade.  There is also a grape one and Honey one but those do not come in at zero calories.
Here is what I like to do:
