Kombucha Sangria

Kombucha Sangria This year, I’ve made it a point to incorporate healthier ingredients into my cocktails at home. I’m all about using the freshest ingredients, like in-season fruit, citrus, herbs, and even vegetables (like these healthy cocktails). Lately, I’ve had an obsession with kombucha and was super excited about using it in this Kombucha Sangria. Kombucha is a fermented tea, typically made from black tea or green tea and sweetened with sugar. During the fermentation process, a thing called a kombucha scoby (symbiotic culture of yeast and bacteria) consumes the sugar and increases the number of healthy bacteria—AKA probiotics! Kombucha has trace amounts of alcohol in it, which to me, sounds like kombucha is a no-brainer ingredient to add to a cocktail!

Kombucha Sangria Kombucha Sangria, serves 6-8

1 bottle pinot grigio
1/2 cup brandy (I used apple brandy)
2 bottles of kombucha (I used GT’s Strawberry Serenity)
1 cup orange juice
2 apples, chopped
2 oranges, sliced
1 cup mixed berries
1 handful fresh mint

Kombucha Sangria Add apples, oranges, mixed berries (I used blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries), and mint to your pitcher. Pour in orange juice, brandy, and wine. Let steep in the refrigerator until chilled 1-2 hours. When you’re ready to serve, pour in kombucha and serve over ice and spoon fruit into each glass. For the orange juice and oranges, I used blood oranges because I was so excited to see them at the market. If you can’t find blood oranges, don’t fret, this recipe works perfectly with regular oranges and orange juice too.

Kombucha Sangria Kombucha Sangria This Kombucha Sangria is not only effervescent, fruity, refreshing, and so good for you, but it is so simple to put together. It is a great option to have on hand when you’re entertaining because it’s quick, your guests can self-serve (in something like this), and it’s pretty to look at, which makes it that much more delicious! Another great thing about this Kombucha Sangria recipe is you can swap out the white wine for red or even rosé, change the flavor of kombucha you’re using, and change up the fruit to make different variations depending on the season. I can’t wait to make this again because who doesn’t love a cocktail with added health benefits? 😉 xo Natalie
