Here on VegKitchen, reader come in droves for our posts on ginger-lemon tea, rooibos tea, and apple cider vinegar. These teas, infusions, and tonics are awesome in and of themselves, and if you’re anything like me, you want all of them as part of your regimen!

This bracing apple cider beverage has lots of good things in it — ginger, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice. This just might become your go-to tonic!
