Raspberry Vinegar Tea and Mabel Bell
On February 23, 1909, the Silver Dart flew at Baddeck Bay, Nova Scotia. Alexander Graham Bell and the Aerial Experiment Association were the first crew to take to the air off of the frozen lake in the middle of winter. To keep all of the guests to this historic event warm, Alexander’s wife, Mabel Bell, served a warm drink called Raspberry Vinegar Tea. The recipe below will give you a taste of this historical drink and can keep you warm during these cold winter months.
