Kombucha mocktails

Kombucha Mocktails

Kombucha is fermented tea, described as tasting similar to sour apple cider, originating from north-east China. The drink had been a hipster favourite for years but has recently burst into the mainstream and on supermarket shelves everywhere. It is said to contain beneficial probiotics, antioxidants that help fight off diseases, antibacterial properties that suppress the growth of undesirable bacteria and yeast, and is even said to reduce the risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

Ingredients

Minty Strawberry

  • 1L Remedy Hibiscus Kiss kombucha
  • 500mL sparkling water
  • 1 punnet strawberries, halved (250 grams)
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves

Crispy Apple

  • 1L Remedy Apple Crisp kombucha
  • 500mL sparkling water
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds
  • 1 green apple, thinly sliced
  • Enough ice to fill your jug

Method

  1. Place the ice and toppings into your jug.
  2. Pour in the kombucha and sparkling water and give it a good stir. It’s best to put the liquid and fruit together an hour before the party so the flavours infuse.
