Good Girl Moonshine

If you’ve got a hankerin’ for a strong drink or are trying to kick a soda habit, Good Girl Moonshine is a great homemade drink alternative to alcohol or pop! It is healthy and detoxifying, and a very healthy habit to consume regularly. Also, this time of year, it’s a great option for beating colds or flus, or, since it’s still sizzling in many states, the heat too!

This is my own personal version of a recipe found on Trim Healthy Mama,  so feel free to play around with the ingredients and make it your own.

The crucial ingredients here are the apple cider vinegar and ginger. Apple cider vinegar is one of the healthiest ingredients you can add to your diet. It boasts a multitude of health benefits, too many to list here! Perhaps most ideal for a sickness-beating/healthy habit forming drink, it boosts the immune system, healthy digestion and assists with weight loss. Ginger does much of the same, killing germs and viruses and promoting healthy circulation.

I have added turmeric, green tea and raw honey. Turmeric is another incredible herb with powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can sooth sore muscles and headaches. Green tea is an incredible antioxidant, and raw honey has great antibiotic properties.


  • 1 cup green tea or herbal tea of choice (hot or cold)
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • ginger to taste
  • turmeric to taste
  • raw honey to taste

Brew tea hot or cold, and once it is fully steeped, add the rest of the ingredients and blend. You can make a large pitcher and drink over a few days, just make sure to mix again before serving. Enjoy!

  1. Except for the turmeric, this is the same recipe my grandmother made for us when we had colds or fevers. She added cinnamon and lemon juice sometimes, too, and sassafras when she could find it. She grew up in rural southern Ohio near West Virginia, and was “apprenticed” to the local midwife/herbswoman. She probably would have used turmeric if she had known about it. She and our family doctor had an odd working relationship, but they respected each other. Our family cough syrup was equal amounts of raw honey and lemon juice, sometimes stirred into tea as a treat.
