What I Drank Wednesday: Kombucha Cocktail

To say I’ve been obsessed with this kombucha  lately would be an understatement. I am craving one every single day…..and totally indulging (hello probiotics).

Yesterday Heath and I got on the topic of health an indulging, specifically in the form of liquid calories, and it got me thinking about combining two of my favorites. Wine and kombucha.

With any old kombucha I’d say no way, but this rowdy belly flavor is the perfect blend of sweet and vinegar. I wanted to pair it with a mild wine so the flavors of the kombucha weren’t overpowered and they complimented each other sooooo well.

So why kombucha?

According to this source it can aid in:

  • Improved digestion
  • Weight loss
  • Increased energy
  • Cleansing and detoxification
  • Immune support
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Cancer preventionDSC_0009 copyDSC_0007 copyDSC_0006 copy

Yes, yes, yes.

Why wouldn’t you want to drink it every day and use it as a filler for your nighttime wine?

If you want to reduce the calories more try this with vodka instead.

You’ll Need

Wine

Kombucha 

Mint

Ice

How to

Muddle mint in the bottom of the glass or clap mint in your hands until you feel the moisture being released

Add ice on top of mint and add in 50/50 wine and kombucha

I like the 50/50 ratio but adjust it on what tastes best for you. There is no right or wrong! This would be amazing with some fresh ginger muddled with the mint or some ground turmeric sprinkled on top *insert heart eyes here*

Let me know if you make this or the different flavor combos you try!

Side note, how cute is this lemon wine cork I found at Target?!
