Summer of Switchel (Cocktails)

This heat and humidity we’ve been having here in MN pairs nicely with a cool and refreshing drink. Superior Switchel makes a beautiful mix for your summertime cocktail (or mocktail), and its electrolyte content is sure to keep you on your feet. We whipped up a few recipes below to make your sweaty sauna of a back porch bearable and dare we say even enjoyable.
