How to Drink Apple Cider Vinegar Shots

A graphic from Bragg about how to drink apple cider vinegar safely.

If you’ve seen apple cider vinegar shots with the other wellness shots in juice shops and grocery stores and though you should drink it as-is, you’re not alone. I had assumed they should be consumed as shots until I noticed this Instagram post from Bragg Live Food Products. Bragg gave me permission to share this graphic, as it’s important information to have when using these shots. While the commercial shots and this recipe do dilute the ACV with juice, it’s only 1-2 ounces. 

An apple cider vinegar shot is poured into a glass of ice water.

I now think of apple cider vinegar shots and concentrates that are great to make in individual portions and refrigerate. Before drinking I add the shot to a cup of sparkling or still water.

Apple Cider Vinegar Shots

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple or fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (Bragg's)
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 8 oz. still or sparkling water

Instructions

  1. Combine pineapple or orange juice, apple cider vinegar, and ginger in a small jar. Shake or whisk to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 2-3 days.
  2. When ready to drink your shot, combine with 8 oz. sparkling or still water.

Notes

Combining 1 tablespoon of ACV with 8 oz. water is recommended, as drinking it as a shot may be too harsh on tooth enamel, esophagus, and stomach.

While this recipe makes one shot, I usually make several at a time and refrigerate for later.

I recommend taking 1-2 shots per day. Bragg's recommends 30 ml ACV per day for healthy weight maintenance (2 shots).

Apple Cider Vinegar Shot benefits may include:

  • Immune system support
  • Gut health
