DIY Hard Kombucha ABV Cocktails

If your lifestyle includes social drinking as well as consuming organic, locally grown foods, hard kombucha may be your new go-to cocktail base. Kombrewcha is made with fair-trade black tea and organic cane sugar fermented with organic yeast and a lively symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, (SCOBY). Naturally low in sugar and alcohol, (3.2% ABV), this fizzy adult beverage is a cross between beer and cider.

Kombrewcha OG, the original variety of the brewed kombucha, while refreshing, has a slightly vinegary taste.  Here are two drink recipes to try at home:

Brewjito cocktail recipe:

  • 3 oz Kombrewcha OG
