I love Good Girl Moonshine, and I try to drink at least one quart every day. Sometimes I drink a couple of them! And thats ok, because it is full of healthy benefits. Now, you may be scratching your head . . . Good Girl Moonshine? This is a drink made with Apple Cider Vinegar and Ginger. It is completely non-alcoholic, and full of health-promoting properties. I’ve never been able to drink the plain original version, but I have always loved it with brewed herbal tea and extracts.
(By the way, we call it “Sunshine” at our house – people do look at you strange when your kids ask for “moonshine.”)
A note on the ingredients:
Apple Cider Vinegar (with the Mother)
- Can help regulate blood sugar
- Can help you feel full, so you eat less
- Can help lower cholesterol
- Can aid in removing toxins from your body
- Can act as a digestive aid

- Can help with nausea
- Ginger can help guard against inflammation
- May help lower blood sugar
- Can help treat indigestion
- May reduce menstrual pain
- Can help fight infections

With all those benefits, why wouldn’t you want to drink it every day? Sometimes I get in a rut with my GGMS, so I have a few tricks I use to switch things up. I’ve recently started adding sparkling water or Zevia colas to my GGMS. When Zevia graciously told me they would send me some of their products to review, I was so pleased, and I already knew what I wanted to make with them. Sparkling Good Girl Moonshine! The zingy fizz takes it to a whole new level!
For this particular drink, I paired the Black Cherry Zevia (which is my favorite) with a True Lime Black Cherry drink packet. (Now, a quick note about those True Lime Packets – there are trace amounts of sugar, but they have been “approved” for use by Trim Healthy Mamas. They are also sweetened with stevia.) If you do not want to use the packets, simply brew 2 Black Cherry Herbal Tea bags, and sweeten with stevia. The result – a fizzy, fruity, fun summer drink that will make your tastebuds sing and your health thank you!
There are so many options for these – the Ginger Ale Zevia would be great mixed with the original version of GGMS. The Lemon-Lime Twist would be great paired with a lemon tea and with a bit of added stevia for extra sweetness. I also love to use the Zevia Sparkling Water for these – the Blackberry or Lime are good in just about any flavor!
Since I love Zevia products so much, I decided to give you a chance to win a 24 pack of their drinks! The winner will receive a variety pack, which contains 2 cans of each flavor – Cola, Ginger Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Cream Soda, Grape, Black Cherry, Lemon Lime Twist, Orange, Mountain Zevia, Dr. Zevia, Caffeine Free Cola and Grapefruit Citrus.
