A Kombucha Mocktail that's Out of this World

December 15, 2017

There are a lot of ways to describe kombucha. While versatile might not necessarily be the first that comes to mind, it’s always fun to find unique ways to incorporate this bubbly probiotic tea into various recipes. With that, we teamed up with Ashley Cuoco of Cucoco Contento to create a Holiday Cheers-infused mocktail.

The holidays are officially here, and there’s certainly A LOT going on. From office holiday parties to family gatherings, it’s the perfect month to celebrate, enjoy and (dare we say) indulge.

This recipe for a Holiday Cheers Sangria might just be a holiday miracle. it’s not only delicious, it’s also equally pleasing to the eye AND it’s alcohol-free! Kombucha’s natural effervescence and tart taste make it the perfect base for a traditional cocktail recipe, such as a sangria. Here Ashley skipped on the wine, instead infusing the base with cranberries & pomegranate juice.
