This is an excellent switchel recipe. Most of the internet recipes add the ginger without steeping it in hot water; this recipe really adds the ginger flavor. I've made batches with and without molasses, and I definitely prefer it without as I find molasses to be an overpowering flavor. Thanks for this recipe, it's a great drink, kind of like an old fashion gatorade. Fun to make your own go-to drink!

This ginger punch is flavored with lemon juice and sweetened with honey and molasses for a refreshing drink that quenches even the fiercest summer thirst.
