Kombucha might not be your first thought when considering ingredients for alcoholic drinks but these kombucha cocktails prove they have a place in many drink recipes!
If you are unfamiliar, kombucha is a carbonated, fermented drink made with tea and yeast that tastes a little sweet and a little tart.
This drink has recently gained a lot of popularity because of its benefits, but our focus is on the taste!
We don’t claim these are healthy cocktails, but you may be able to enjoy them with less guilt than others.
Two tips to keep in mind for all of these cocktails are: add your kombucha last to save the bubbles and be sure to taste your kombucha before you mix it up to be sure you like the flavor and sweetness level.
This carbonated tea drink already has a good amount of zing but if you want more, a Chili Ginger Kombucha Cocktail may be for you.
