Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

I mentioned on twitter the other day that I finally found a way to drink the almighty apple cider vinegar...without dying.  If you've ever tried it, you know that is no easy task.  Years ago I started trying to take a shot of it in the mornings, right as it was on the cusp of exploding into this "miracle liquid" many praise today.  I stood in my kitchen maybe on third day, tried to shoot it down my throat without tasting it and I inhaled and exhaled all the same time and it went down the wrong tube!  Now, we've all had this happen with water...can you imagine how it felt with VINEGAR?!  I actually thought, "This is it, this is how I die."  I could not breathe or catch my breath and I had a raspy voice the rest of the day.  
I tell you this tale as a precautionary tale....DO NOT take shots of straight ACV, you MUST dilute it!
Now that I've scared you sufficiently, let's stay with what type of ACV you should use.  Although it's easy to just buy the cheap store brand version, if you're going through the effort of drinking vinegar, at least make it worth it and grab the BRAGG's Organic kind.  Give it a shake before use.
To make your ACV drink:
1 Tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Pure Apple Cider
3/4 Cup Water
 Mix all ingredients well & if you're feeling crazy, sprinkle a tiny amount of cinnamon. 
Don't try to guzzle it all, I like to take 1 or 2 big gulps at a time to keep it from burning too much.
I love to drink this first thing in the morning.  You can look up all the amazing benefits, but for me personally, it helps with skin, metabolism, and stomach health.  I've tried a few different ways to drink ACV, and this is by far the most enjoyable yet still efficient way to get it in your system.
