If you're into soothing bellyaches with tasty mocktails, this post's for YOU.
I could wax poetic about the tremendous benefits of eating bitter foods (there are seriously so many, but let's just leave it at, "It's very good for your entire GI tract to eat and drink bitter things."), and of drinking fermented vinegar (again, "It's very good."), but you'll probably be wanting to go straight to the recipe, eh?
If you're curious about why this works for a bellyache, feel free to reach out. But be prepared for a conversation in that case, because I really, really love talking bitters and vinegars.

*This recipe was adapted from the Aronia Berry Punch created by KeepWell (and that recipe is equally delicious!).
