This grape antioxidant drink combines grape juice with apple cider vinegar and tastes just like the Braggs concord grape antioxidant refresher.

As many of you know I’m huge fan of apple cider vinegar (ACV). I use it in a lot of my recipes and I drink it on the daily. If you’re new and wondering what the heck I’m talking about do yourself a favor and check out this post dedicated to the health benefits of apple cider vinegar.

That said, I’m always looking for new ways to get in my daily dose of ACV. One of my favorite concoctions is the apple pie ACV drink I posted about over a year ago, but drinking that day in and day out can get a bit monotonous so I’m really excited about this new little creation that combines antioxidant rich concord grape juice and apple cider vinegar.

Copycat Recipe for the Bragg ACV Grape Refresher

I got the idea for this recipe from the Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Drink with concord grape. I’d seen the drink at our local health food store but never purchased it until a friend introduced me to it during a blogger meet-up.

The Bragg’s ACV drinks are over $3 a pop (a.k.a not cheap) so I quickly I figured out how to make a homemade version that tastes just as good and costs way less. Once you spend a little bit of money buying a jug of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar, a bottle of organic 100% Concord grape juice, and liquid stevia you can make a ton of these drinks for a fraction of the cost.

Ingredients Needed

My ingredient list for the drink is a tad different than the ingredients in the bottle because I used only grape juice instead of a combo of grape and acai juice. The reason I cut out the acai juice (what the drink used to be made with… it’s now made with hibiscus) because it’s really pricey and the grape juice has plenty of antioxidant power on it’s own.

Another difference is that my acai-less version has a bit more tang to it. Maybe it has more apple vinegar or less stevia? Either way, Isaac and I both think my version is better than the original. We’re not biased at all. 😉

This recipe is perfect for folks that are new to apple cider vinegar, because it does have the grape juice and stevia, which makes it more palatable than just apple cider vinegar diluted in water. It’s also great for all the apple cider vinegar lovers, like myself, that are looking for a new recipes to shake things up a little.

The Power of Antioxidants

This drink packs a powerful antioxidant punch – concord grapes have one of the highest antioxidant scores among fruit and they’re also high in several different types of polyphenols (the same antioxidants found in wine, tea and chocolate). They protect against heart disease and also prevent cellular and organ damage caused by free radicals. So yeah, the nutrients found in Concord grape juice (and other fruits) make them a good choice as long as you’re not overdoing it.

    A recipe likes this, is why my teenager will drink acv! I brought home the Bragg’s version of it that cost me just over $3.00 and my son really enjoyed drinking it. But now, it looks like I’ll be making it rather than buying. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. You mentioned it being more tart without the acai. More than likely it is the extra tablespoon of vinegar.Bragg’s puts 2 tbsp ACV per 16 oz vs. the 3 per 16 oz (roughly) in this recipe.

  3. 4 stars
    I love this recipe the only thing I do differently is I use sparkling water and my homemade powdered sweetener.

    1. So glad you enjoyed this recipe, Sherri!! Thanks for making it and for the review. I so appreciate it!
