Iced Cherry Apple Cider Vinegar Tea

In this post I’m going to show you how to make what I call cherry “VinTea” cooler, but what is essentially iced cherry apple cider vinegar tea. This healthy, delicious, and refreshing drink uses organic apple cider vinegar and tastes surprisingly like a Snapple! 

I’ve taken up a lot of habits in my lifetime and some of them have even been worthwhile! Today I’m going to share with you a new habit of mine that I’ve been doing regularly for about a month now: drinking apple cider vinegar (ACV). Now don’t go scrunching up your face. This is old-time medicine according to my grandparents. Folks have been doing it for ages, all the way back to Hippocrates, who considered ACV to be medicine and used it to treat ailments.

This is just one of the ACV drinks I’ve been drinking lately but folks on Instagram said they’d like some of my recipes so I’m starting here. I decided to call it “VinTea” because it is a vinegar-based tea drink that just makes your tastebuds sing. Think of what a splash of lemon juice does to a drink and you’ll understand the effect you get by adding ACV. They do pretty much the same thing but with slightly different flavors. 

Benefits of apple cider vinegar tea

There have been several studies showing the benefits of ACV. Just do a quick internet search to find dozens. Some have shown it helps contribute to weight loss, others have proven that it regulates the blood sugar level of people with type 2 diabetes when taken with or before a meal. Here’s what WebMD has to say on the health benefit of drinking apple cider vinegar.

Personally, I can tell you that this iced cherry apple cider vinegar drink has helped me curb my desire for junk food and cokes (which is Alabama for all carbonated beverages). Use that good kind with the “mother” at the bottom (Braggs is my favorite) and you’re getting a powerful dose of probiotics with every sip. I can use any of these reasons and more to encourage you to drink it, but today’s reason is that this cherry VinTea is absolutely delicious!

Ingredients for apple cider vinegar tea.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Apple cider vinegar (preferably this brand)
  • Black Cherry Berry tea
  • Sweetener (I am using Truvia but you can use sugar, your favorite sweetener, or even honey if you like).

How to Make Iced Cherry Apple Cider Vinegar Tea

Steep tea in a quart jar.

Place two tea bags in a quart jar, mason jar, or coffee cup and pour about a cup or a cup and a half of boiling hot water over them. Allow them to steep for a good bit (about 15 minutes). You want this stuff strong!

I just start out with a quart jar because it has plenty of room for me to add ice and my other ingredients, then fill it up the rest of the way with water. Stick a straw in and you’re good to go!

Remove tea bags and stir in sweetener.

After it has brewed, toss out your tea bags and add your sweetener. We want to add this while it is warm because some sweeteners are not as easily dissolved as others.

Stirry! Stirry!

Add apple cider vinegar.

Add in your apple cider vinegar.

I’m just adding about two tablespoons or two good splashes if you will. You can add less or more depending on your tastes but I wouldn’t start out with more than two tablespoons in a quart jar.

You don’t want it to taste like you’re drinking Easter egg dye. Don’t worry! It won’t! Seriously! Oh man, now I’ve just made some of you panic. Hang in there, be brave, be strong, be adventurous with me.

This apple cider vinegar drink is delicious. Honest!

Now, fill your glass up with ice (some of it will melt), add cold water to get it to the top, pop in a straw, and enjoy your VinTea!


This apple cider vinegar tea recipe makes just 1 glass, so there’s no need to store leftovers. Simply double the recipe if making it for more than one person at a time.

Recipe Notes

  • I have found Bragg’s organic apple cider vinegar at Krogers and Walmart. It is getting to be pretty mainstream now so you should be able to find it near you. I pay about $5 for this bottle and a bottle lasts me about two weeks with heavy drinking. ~giggles~ Hey y’all, look at me, I’m a heavy drinker! hee hee.
  • For added flavor, add a tablespoon or two of fresh or bottled lemon juice or lime juice.
  • You can use any kind of brewed tea in this apple cider vinegar tea. Iced green tea is always a popular option.
  • Remember, to sweeten the tea you can use sugar, a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda, or even honey.

  1. I drink ACV everyday and it has gotten rid of my heartburn. I mix a teaspoon of ACV with a cold glass of water (8oz). My husband now drinks it too and has gotten the same benefits. So wonderful that you have posted this recipe for apple cider vinegar.

  2. Did anyone notice any weight loss because they say apple cider vinegar is suppose to help with weight loss.

  3. Christy, This sounds like a refreshing drink. I will have to look for the tea . I do have different teas that are a berry tea. I may try also.

    My question is, I have some fruit drinks like Cranberry & Raspberry. Just wonder if I could do this with them? I don’t drink a lot of the juice but I bought it for a family gathering and now I’m left two containers of juice.

  4. Interesting! I’m an avid iced tea drinker. This looks like the ideal beverage. I am diabetic with blood pressure issues as well as cholesterol issues. Love finding healthy ideas to boost my health!

  5. Hi!
    My husband had severe gout and I’ve had osteoarthritis 45 years. In my teens, my stepmom taught me the benefits of ACV for LOTS of things. I’d take a teacup filed halfway with ACV,the rest of the way with hot water (same temp as coffee) and a healthy glob of raw local honey, every morning. I’ve probably taken as total of 6 to 12 individual tablets that were Rx in all those years. But the REAL ‘miracle’ drink evolved when we were on the Smokies and my husband forgot his gout meds. We went into a health food store we stumbled on and the sweet lady there heard us talking, saying ‘I don’t mean to interrupt but my husband had it real bad. Now he drinks equal parts BRAGG’S ACV, hot water, raw honey, AND pure cherry juice. She said that real, pure cherry nice is kind of expensive but nowhere near what his Rx was AND he’d been got free for a number of years. My husband and I both tried it. After a while, he didn’t get it anymore either, plus it helped my arthritis.
    I’m liking forward to seeing more of your teas and other users for ACV.
