Letters: How about a nice cold Haymaker's Drink?

A Haymaker's Drink is a homemade beverage that threshers made

| October 1999

Editor's note: In the August issue of Farm Collector, a letter from Walter L. Hayward, Kanarraville, Utah, inquired as to the recipe for a homemade beverage that threshers used to quench their thirst. We came across this recipe for ''Haymaker's Drink":

1-1/2 cups of a blend of maple syrup, brown sugar and molasses (at least 1/4 cup should be molasses)
1 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh, grated ginger (use 3/4 tablespoon if using powdered ginger)
1 teaspoon salt
Enough cold water to make a gallon
Mix all ingredients and chill.
