You know what I did this summer, I made up my own cocktail…
The Kombucha Tequila Kocktail
Yep, that’s kocktail with a “K”. Get used to it.
Now I know some of you are wincing at the fact that I’m suggesting the idea of mixing a summer libation with kombucha, but please hear me out.
First off, kombucha is good for you! That’s a gigantic plus. And word on the street is that tequila has some health benefits as well. Double whammy!
Want to cut back on drinking soda, try kombucha. It’s a wonderful replacement for carbonated, sugary beverages and even beer as well!
Looking to treat your belly to some good old fashioned gut health and probiotics – this fermented tea may be just the thing for you.
Detoxing but still want to sip on something bubbly while out with friends, throw in a paper straw and sip away! Kombucha is a great way to not get drunk.
So, what is kombucha exactly?
Well, it’s basically fermented tea that’s slightly effervescent and contains less than 0.5% of alcohol. Historian buffs aren’t sure when kombucha first made its appearance in the beverage scene. Some say 200 years, others say 2,000. Either way, it’s here now and from the looks of it, it’s here to stay.
I’ve been drinking kombucha for ages – it’s basically a right of passage as a yoga instructor – and since I love tequila, I thought I’d throw them together to see if they worked and guess what….
Now, not all kombucha is equal. It takes a special flavor to get the job done right. My favorite go-to is Synergy’s Strawberry Kombucha. It’s absolutely refreshingly delicious and pairs perfectly with a blanco tequila.
However, find what kombucha you love best and do your thang!
Here’s how it’s done….
Cup filled with ice
1 Ounce shot of blanco tequila*
Kombucha of your choice**
A garnish of your choice (optional)
* We love Costco’s Kirkland’s Silver Tequila for this creation. Believe it or not, it’s wonderful.
** Pick a flavor that you love and will compliment a smooth tequila. Something bright and full of flavor.
Pour your tequila over ice. Fill up 3/4 of your glass with the kombucha of your choice, top with soda/sparkling water. Stir, garnish, sip and most importantly, enjoy!
Behold, The Kombucha Tequila Kocktail in all its glory!
