Make Happy Hour Healthy With These 7 Kombucha Cocktails
We've been noticing a burgeoning trend in the happy-hour corner of cyberspace. Lately our Pinterest feeds have been featuring a slew of health-centric cocktails for top-notch entertaining. Maybe it's the fact that healthy is the new wealthy but either way, it seems we're all for toasting to health when the clock strikes five. These beautifully concocted cocktails all feature one star ingredient: kombucha. The probiotic-filled beverage is naturally fermented, making it a no-brainer for mixers. We can't believe we didn't think of this first.
Lindsey Johnson for Café Johnsonia
Among the more inventive of the recipes that caught our eye, this enticing spiced rum fig kombucha cocktail has us daydreaming of island hopping in the sun (the cold weather might have something to do with that too). We're especially loving this one for Indian summer. It's just the sort of thing to ease the feel of the bitter cold outside.
Tieghan Gerard for Half Baked Harvest
There's nothing wrong with a summer cocktail in winter so put an ultra-fresh spin on a warm-weather favourite with this berry kombucha sangria recipe. The prep is essentially the same as classic sangria, soaking fresh stone fruits and berries in white wine overnight. Adding a kick of kombucha for a flavourful finish brings an extra layer of depth.
Abby Thompson for Oh My Veggies
Channeling all the sugar-and-spice vibes, this elegant strawberry ginger kombucha elixir is composed of strawberry-infused vodka, fresh berries, kombucha, and a splash of bitters. The result is a mellow and refined beverage we're teeing up for poolside hangs.
