15 Kombucha Cocktail Recipes To Try Before You Buy More Wine

In just a few years, kombucha has gone from being an obscure
Whole Foods oddity to a trendy health-adjacent drink to a beverage
that lines grocery aisles and is even served on tap. Thus,
it was only a matter of time before
kombucha cocktails
became A Thing™.
If there is a
way to spike something, the internet will find out how.

As you may know, kombucha already has a very small percentage of
alcohol. However, that percentage is typically only about 0.5%
though some have a 3% ABV, depending on their fermentation process.
For context,
O’Doul’s non-alcoholic beer
has about a 0.5% ABV and most

low-calorie beers
have around 4% ABV. So, if you’re wondering

whether kombucha can make you drunk
on its own, the answer is
probably not. There are brave souls who have
tried to get drunk off kombucha
alone, but, after drinking
nearly a gallon of the stuff, were left with a 0.01 blood alcohol
level and bad gas. In other words, if you want to get tipsy on
kombucha, your best bet is just to add your alcohol of choice to
it.

Whether you’re new to the kombucha game or you’re looking to
spice up your cocktail repertoire, there is a kombucha cocktail on
this list you’ll want to try. Pour yourself a glass of that stinky
fizz and enjoy.

Kombrewcha’s “New Year, New Brew-Cha”

Kombrewcha’s hard
kombucha
is, as its name suggests, already alcoholic with a
4.4% ABV. But if you’re looking to make it into something ~fancy~,
they have a recipe for a new year-inspired drink that will have you
feeling at least 4.4% more celebratory.

You’ll need:

– 1 can of Kombrewcha Berry Hibiscus

– ½ oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

– Orange Bitters

– Sparkling Wine (they recommend either brut or prosecco)

– Pomegranate seeds to garnish

To make your drink, pour your elderflower liqueur into a
champagne flute and add three dashes of orange bitters. Then, add
in a 50/50 split of both the Kombrewcha Berry Hibiscus and
sparkling wine. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and enjoy.

Gold Fashioned

For a twist on a traditional old fashion, GT’s

and mentally whisk yourself to an island vacation.
