Switchel Recipe - Google Docs
(This is Adrian’s switchel recipe.)

“// 16X (approx 1 gallon) AB modifications
“• 2 cups apple cider vinegar (I use the hippie stuff: Bragg’s)
“• Juice of 2 limes (optional)
“• 1 ⅓ cup sweetener (I usually split evenly between maple syrup + honey)
“• ⅓ cup (or a little more) grated fresh ginger
“• 1 gallon water

“1. Bring water to boil.
“2. Add grated ginger (usually I do this in a tea steeper but you can also just put it in loose and strain it later.)
“3. Add about 1 cup of sweetener.
“4. Wait for it to cool to warm. (You’ll want to be able to taste it.)
“5. Add limes if desired. Add about 1.5 cups of apple cider vinegar.
“6. Taste and add more apple cider vinegar or sweetener as desired.”

The Red Bull story: how world’s top energy drink began in Thailand, but it took an Austrian to make it a global phenomenon | South China Morning Post
The Austrian businessman’s masterstroke was to create a lasting association – through endless sponsorships of athletes and events – between the energy surge from Red Bull and the adrenaline rush from high-octane pursuits such as cliff diving, skateboarding and air racing.

“It’s a textbook example of how to convert a brand icon with rich emotional meaning into marketing tactics which reinforce that meaning,”

Coffee was “Satan’s brew” before Pope Clement VIII baptized it
2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed daily, worldwide.Legend has it that a goat herder named Kaldi was the first to discover the effects of coffee, around the year 850.The drink quickly achieved popularity in the Middle East, although it was seen by some as a vice akin to alcohol and tobacco. During the reign of Sultan Murad IV (1612–40), all three of these items were made illegal, in a bid to cleanse the land of vice.Coffee was met with harsher criticism when it came to Western society. The association with its Islamic founders fanned the flames of prejudice and it was commonly dubbed “Satan’s Drink.” It was not until the reign of Pope Clement VIII, more than 700 years after its discovery, that the West accepted the drink.When members of his court implored Pope Clement VIII to denounce coffee, the pontiff insisted on trying a cup before he cast his verdict. After a few sips, he announced, “This Satan’s drink is so delicious that it would be a pity to let the infidels have exclusive use of it.”Popular tradition holds that the pope then “baptized” coffee beans in order to cleanse them from the devil’s influence. Historians are unclear whether this was a metaphorical baptism, or if the pope performed an exorcism rite on actual beans, but either way it had the same effect. Once Catholics knew they were allowed to drink coffee, it spread through Europe like wildfire...Church has blessed beer and they have blessed cheese, but we bless Pope Clement VIII for his role in bringing us, each day, our daily brew.

Irish honey among world’s healthiest, study finds
Irish heather honey contains health benefits comparable with the world renowned manuka honey from New Zealand,Honey provides many benefits for overall health, with antioxidant, antibacterial, antidiabetic and anti-inflammatory properties.Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Advocates say it has particularly strong properties that are useful for treating wound infections and actually prevents damage to cell tissue.The Irish research found a similar overall presence of powerful antioxidants called phenolic compounds in Irish heather honey as has been found in manuka honey.Researchers also found that multifloral honeys produced by urban bees had a greater level of antioxidant phenolic compounds than their rural counterparts – a finding possibly due to the flower diversity and abundance surrounding hives.
