6 Simple Kombucha Cocktail Recipes
AUTHOR LOUISE AVERY / PUBLISHED: FEB-2022
Not only is kombucha a healthier mixer option than sugary soft drinks or tonics, its tart, sweet, fizzy flavour profile and moreish tang can be just the thing to make your non-alcoholic cocktail stand up to its alcoholic counterpart. Here are our 6 favourite simple kombucha cocktail recipes for you to try:
1. CLEMENTINE BUCK'S FIZZ
We really think we've cracked the formula here. Using kombucha in place of champagne or sparkling wine in a Buck's Fizz adds complexity, acidity and a dry finish, similar to that of champagne - but without the alcohol.
Simply serve the clementine juice as you would a buck's fizz in a champagne flute topped with Sparkling English Rose or Citrus Hops kombucha to taste.
2. SPARKLING ROSE & PEACH BELLINI
A refreshingly fizzy & fruity non-alcoholic take on a classic Bellini. The ultimate way to make the most of peach season.
Sparkling English Rose kombucha
2 flat peaches
Peel and blend/juice the flat peaches, leaving a few slices for garnishing. Top with L.A Sparkling English Rose kombucha
Add lemon juice to taste & garnish with peach slices.
3. HOPPY NEGRONI
We think that kombucha can be used to create the most delicious Negroni alternative. The floral, tropical notes of our Citrus Hops kombucha pairs beautifully with a bittersweet spirit such as Wilfred's (alcohol-free) or Campari for a low alcohol cocktail.
Wilfred's non-alcoholic spirit or Campari
Citrus Hops kombucha
Simply add 1 part of your chosen bittersweet spirit to a glass. Top with 2 parts Citrus Hops kombucha.
5. STRAWBERRY MOSCOW MULE
Our summery take on a moscow mule. Sweet strawberries, refreshing mint with a ginger kombucha kick.
L.A Ginger kombucha
2 sprigs of mint
Halve the strawberries and tear the mint into a glass. Muddle or mash using a fork / spoon / pestle. Top with L.A Ginger kombucha. Garnish with a squeeze of 1/4 lime.
6. PEAR & GINGER SOUR
The classic pear & ginger combination but with more complexity & zing from the kombucha.
1 fresh pear, or 2 tbsp pear puree
L.A Tropical Ginger kombucha
Half a lime
Optional: fresh ginger to garnish
Juice the fresh pear in your juicer. If you don’t have a juicer, or pears aren’t in season, you can use store bought pear puree as an alternative.
Combine the pear juice and kombucha in a glass. Add a squeeze of lime & garnish with a slice of ginger.
