Fuego Tonic

This spicy drink is our version of a well loved folk preparation called fire cider. Fire ciders are used to boost digestion, aid healthy body processes, warm you up on cold days, and help to ward off illness.

Traditionally, fire ciders are vinegar based and include lots of spicy and/or health boosting herbs. Our Fuego Tonic is no exception. We start with a homemade fruit vinegar (exactly what type of fruit vinegar varies by availability of quality fruits) and infuse it with aji peppers and other lovely herbs, many of which are grown on our farm.

We like to enjoy a shot of our Fuego Tonic diluted in a bit of hot water on cold nights. It’s also a delicious, healthy addition to soups, stir fries, and salad dressings. It can also be taken straight if you don’t mind some spice! We like taking bigger, more frequent doses to boost immunity if it seems like illness is threatening to come on.

Ingredients: Wild Blossom fruit vinegar,* onion, garlic, stinging nettle,* turmeric, wild ginger,* lemon,* aji pepper,* thyme,* oregano,* mountain spring water, and panela
