I am nostalgic for a made up drink.

So my Depression-era grandma used to make us this drink consisting of (I think) ginger, vinegar, sugar, and water. The recipe went to the pearly gates along with her. Help.

She'd make it in the summer and I remember it being quite refreshing, kind of like ginger ale but different. I've searched the intarwebs but can only find recipes for apple cider tonic or some recipe involving fruit and balsamic.
Does any of this ring a bell to anyone? Is this a midwestern thing? Or was this just something the voices told her to make and it turned out delicious anyhow?
