I bought one of these at Atkin's Farms, in Amherst, Massachusetts today.
I put it in the fridge.  Has anyone ever had it?  To be honest, I'm a little apprehensive.

Why would you be apprehensive about drinking it?  I'd be apprehensive about paying over two bucks for it.   Knowing that Bragg recommends taking 1/2 ounce of vinegar a day and that the suggested serving size on this product as being 8 oz, I suspect that the amount of vinegar in the whole bottle is probably 1-2 oz.  If you look at the ingredient list, you see
Distilled Water, Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic Ginger and Stevia Extract, in that order.
 
I might try it sometime out of curiosity and I'm sure it's better for you than anything else in the cooler, but it is a little pricey for a bottle of mostly water.

I'm being lighthearted, but I have no idea what to expect ... I, myself, have never thought of vinegar as a beverage.
 
And it was $2.49 !!!

Some "health food" people consider apple cider vinegar to be good for your digestion. 
 
Do you like the flavor of bread-and-butter pickles?  This drink should have a flavor somewhat similar to them.

If that's your hangup, you'll probably be pleasantly surprised.  I drink an ounce of Yoder's Good Health Recipe every day and it's heavy on the vinegar.

No need for Zantac.  A lot of people who use ACV everyday do so to fight acid reflux.  I can speak from my own personal experience of using YGHR.  Before I started using it, I had major acid reflux problems.  No more.

Well, I would like to try it.  I've been trying to find it locally with no luck.  However, I love Bragg's Liquid Aminos, salad dressing, and apple cider vinegar.  Good products.

Jman.... Really?!!!  My Prilosec is a daily thing and if I should miss a day I die!
 
Guess I'll pick up a bottle if I see it.  We get Bragg's at our local health food store.

  I usually have a tsp of Balsamic vinegar and a TBS of E.V.O.O. The same chemicals that are in grape juice are concentrated in vinegar and the oil is great for your skin, eyes, etc...

I don't know... with all that water and sweetener.   I prefer to drink my cider vinegar straight.    Slice some cukes, fill with vinegar, add salt and pepper and when done drink some of the vinegar.
 
I don't like those wussified cucumber/onion salads with water and sugar at all - straight vinegar for me!

Your drink seems similar to switchel, which has been around about as long as the USA has.  Google switchel for a little bit more history.
.
Here's the recipe we used to use for my daughter's softball team.
.
SWITCHEL
8 cups water, divided
1 cup sugar
1/ 2 cup cider vinegar
1/ 2 cup molasses
1/ 2 tsp. ground ginger
4 cloves
.
In saucepan, put only 2 cups of water and the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. When it comes to a boil, take off from heat, remove cloves, and cool to room temperature. Chill in refrigerator. When ready to serve, add the remaining 6 cups of very cold water.
