How to Make an Immune-Boosting ACV Shot, Just in Time for Flu Season

Wellness trends come and go, but buzzy, benefit-rich apple cider vinegar has been around for a while and isn't showing any signs of leaving.

And it's no wonder why: The miracle elixir has serious detoxing and digestion-enhancing properties, which is why everyone from Miranda Kerr and Jennifer Aniston to our very own editors swear by the stuff. Although too much of a good thing can lead to some gastrointestinal issues, when taken in moderation, the elixir is basically the holy grail of wellness ingredients.

Taking a straight shot of it might not be right for you, so Jessica Rosen, a certified holistic health coach and the founder of Raw Generation, has an apple cider vinegar shot recipe that mellows ACV's tartness with lemon, chamomile, and honey—which, TBH, sounds pretty darn delicious.

Whip up a jar of the stuff while you're meal-prepping—Rosen says it'll stay good for a week in the fridge.

Give ACV shots the DIY treatment with the recipe below
