Kombucha works particular well with sour cocktails like a margarita. Use kombucha to serve a highball, long drinks or even a collins styled serve, which I made in the kombucha cocktail recipes you’ll find below.
Kombucha or kombucha tea is a fermented, tart and refreshing, sweetened black or green tea. The tea is usually fermented for a period of 10 to 14 days at room temperature, and is known and commonly consumed for the health benefits, and typically contains under half the content of sugar, known to be used in regular soft drinks like soda water.
Many kombucha’s are often added with flavourings in form of fruits, spices or other flavourings to enchance the taste experience. Added flavourings to enhance the taste, is also used in the two kombucha’s I have used to make the cocktails which I have displayed in this post.
Just like beer, brewing your own kombucha at home, is increasing it’s popularity all over the world. The kombucha’s I’ve used for the kombucha cocktails, also started as a home brewing project, which later on grew into a company, that now produces commercially for consumers to buy.
