Prophecy Six Series – Child of the Light – is on sale until April 14th. Since that is going on I thought I’d share with you a recipe that I’ve been using since writing book 2 – Children of Sirphan.

In book two – Children of Sirphan – during Liora’s Name Day, she spends some time working in the garden in Demor. While she is taking a break Marcia comes to keep her company under the shade of one of the merchant carts, offering the girl something to drink. This bitter-sweet liquid is called switchel, a drink similar to Kombucha but not as popular. Unlike Kombucha, Switchel relies on pre-fermented items to create the drink and is actually very simple to make.

Other name’s Switchel is known as is:

  • Haymaker’s Punch
  • Ginger-water
  • Swizzy

The drink is high in electrolyte and is very refreshing on a hot day. It does take time to aquire a taste for the stuff, but it is worth a try.
