This sounds interesting. I'll give it a go, sweetened by honey or agave syrup.

I bet strawberries would blend well with it, too.

switchel: good.
shrub: boozy-good.

from the earlier vinegar thread, the 3 black vinegars I bought... ShanXi is a keeper! but, zhenjian/chinkiang kinda ma-ma-de (HK word for so-so/meh)

and of course far-right is Yamaroku pasteurized tsuru-bishio, the best shoyu I have ever in my misspent life tasted. talk about drinking something straight... I 1700% blame kyuzokai for this, I am now ruined on soy sauce for the rest of my days. damn your scaly hide!!!

and for completeness' sake... Yamaroku unpasteurized tsuru and their kiku-bishio...

Haven't been there in a while, but there's a spot a little north of here with an impressive vinegar selection and free samples. You can spend a while in there just doing shots of some great vinegars that are plenty drinkable on their own.

Six months after pickling a dozen Scotch Bonnet chilis in it, the vinegar tastes absofarkinglutely amazing in a Vinaigrette dressing.

I used to live above a place that just sold spices, flavored oils, and flavored vinegars.  Cherry and pomegranate balsamics make hella good glazes.

I also have a few balsamic/olive oil stores around me with those jugs.  Have mainly used the oils, but between the balsamic I picked up there and what I brought back with Italy, I think I've consumed probably 70% of it by the spoonful 'cause it was just too damn tasty.

Allow me to correct your punctuation: You're drinking vinegar. Wrong!

More importantly why the hell would you drink pure vinegar?

For fun?  For health?

But yeah, a valid question, no snark.

Fire Cider claims there's some health benefits. https://firecider.com/pages/about-us

Also, in the article, you're not drinking pure vinegar, but using it as the acid/sour in a lemonade-style drink.

Sort of on topic but we've been buying a lot of the various flavored seltzers (been too lazy to carbonate one of the spare kegs) and I recently concocted a nice summer cocktail.

6 oz. AHA pomegranate blueberry seltzer
4 oz. vodka
1 oz. apple cider vinegar
1.5 tsp. pomegranate molasses

And add some fresh muddled blueberries if you got 'em.

I'll give it a try, but with more fruit and less sugar.

This!
I go with these green tea/jasmine pearls. A little pricey, but a little bit goes a long way. I also add some dried hibiscus flowers that I get from a local Mexican store. Awesome!

Sipping it like a good liqueur works, too. A fine balsamic is amazing stuff.

Sun tea: bring food up to the critical temperature and leave it there for an hour or two

huh, those pearl-dealies are new to me. always something interesting on foodtab!

I buy hibiscus by the lb (check out the brand davidsons https://smile.amazon.com/gp​/product/B0​00SATIZA/ ) and just leave it in the fridge with some rose-hips (also davidsons) - but yeah if I wanted to add actual-tea, then sun is definitely the way to go.

I have a hard enough time dealing with the smell of vinegar in stuff I like such as BBQ sauce. The aroma of vinegar has always made me a bit nauseous. Can't imagine intentionally drinking the stuff.

Roman legionnaires mixed it back with water, herbs, and a bit of honey if they had it.

Better than drinking untreated creek water.
