2023-04-18 | bar

Kombucha is an ancient drink that has become very popular in recent years. Discover what it is, how it is made, why it helps to improve health and be surprised by some of its applications in cocktails.

What is Kombucha?

It is a fermented beverage made from black or green tea, sweetened with sugar. It is prepared with a colony of bacteria and yeast known as SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). During fermentation, it consumes the sugar and turns the tea into a slightly effervescent and acidic beverage.

Health benefits.

Kombucha is rich in probiotics, enzymes, and organic acids that improve digestion, strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation. It has also been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and blood pressure.

How to prepare Kombucha.

To make Kombucha, it is necessary to have the following:

*1 SCOBY.

*1 cup of black or green tea.

*1 cup of sugar.

*3 liters of water.

*A glass jar.

*A cloth to cover the jar.

Boil the water, add the tea and sugar, stir until completely dissolved, and let it cool. Place the SCOBY in the glass jar and pour the cooled tea over it; cover the jar with a cloth and let it stand in a dark, warm place for 7-10 days. If it is not acidic enough, it should be left to ferment for a few more days and stored in airtight glass bottles until it becomes more effervescent.

Kombucha applications in cocktails.

Kombucha has also become a popular ingredient in cocktails. Its tart and slightly sweet flavor can add a touch of complexity and freshness to your favorite drinks. For example:

Kombucha Fizz.

Kombucha Fizz is a variation of the classic Gin Fizz, in which mineral water is replaced with Kombucha to add extra flavor and a touch of effervescence.

Kombucha Margarita.

Kombucha can also be a delicious addition to classic margaritas; you need a glass with ice, tequila, lime juice, and agave syrup. Add the Kombucha and stir gently. Garnish the rim of the glass with salt and a slice of lime to enjoy your Kombucha Margarita to the fullest.

Kombucha Mule.

The Moscow Mule is a classic cocktail with vodka, ginger beer, and fresh lime juice. The Kombucha Mule replaces the ginger beer with Kombucha to add extra flavor and a touch of effervescence.

Kombucha Spritz.

To prepare this fresh and bubbly cocktail, you only need Kombucha, sparkling wine, and Aperol in a wine glass with ice. Garnish with a slice of orange and delight in its flavor!
