Kombucha has been my new obsession lately. I work right next to a Target and love to walk there on lunch breaks. I recently started a new ritual on instagram called #walktotargetwednesday and it usually results in a kombucha purchase, or I find a new treat to try! If you don’t know what Kombucha is, it is a fermented tea! It is fermented with these live yeast and cultures called “SCOBY”, which makes it smell like vinegar a bit, and also makes it bubbly! Most kombuchas are flavored though which makes them taste amazing.
Real talk – when I first tried the booch in college I thought it was gross. I couldn’t get past the vinegary smell and now? I don’t even smell it! The taste is also way different than the smell usually. My favorite is the GT’s Gingerade. It tastes like a healthy ginger beer with no sugar or anything added, just kombucha and ginger. This whole adding it to alcohol thing is new territory and I am SO pumped about it. I love a good cocktail but I feel like most mixers are loaded with sugar unless you go with club soda which can get super boring. Now I can turn to kombucha for all of my mixer needs! Bonus: kombucha is a probiotic that improves digestion, mental clarity and mood stability – perfect compliment to a drink that might do the opposite thing.
We gotta live and enjoy our cocktails so CHEERS!!! 🙂
The add ins for sangria are always my favorite. Strawberries are beautifully in season now!
Stemless glasses are the best. THE BEST!
Pin it for future sangria fun!!
