  Apple Cider Vinegar Iced Tea #HeinzVinegar

If you enjoy the tangy taste of apple cider vinegar in your salads, marinades and other recipes let me tempt your taste buds with a delightfully refreshing ice tea that will cool you off and leave your taste buds singing. Heinz® Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar is vinegar in its most natural and wholesome form. The product retains the “mother” of the vinegar – a compound created naturally during vinegar’s fermentation process.

I’ve always heard that apple cider vinegar with the mother left  in it was healthier for you. I know many people in the south would probably agree. Vinegar is used in the south in many ways that most people might not be aware of, like topping off a glass of iced or hot tea with a teaspoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar with mother.

Besides using unfiltered apple cider vinegar to make a salad dressing many people enjoy it in a beverage for the possible health benefits.. That might be shocking to many of you but don’t knock it until you try it.

Apple cider vinegar has a smoother and more mellow flavor than white vinegar. If you have never used it to make a salad dressing next time replace the white vinegar in the recipe with some Heinz unfiltered apple cider vinegar and compare the flavors.

I adapted this recipe from the  Green Tea with Fresh Mint and Honey recipe from the Heinz recipe page. Instead of using honey as the sweetener I made a mint simple syrup to sweeten my glass of Apple Cider  Vinegar Green Tea. I hope you enjoy my version!
