Kombucha Margaritas

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo and it feels nothing like May or the time for summery drinks. But I had plans to blog about a kombucha margarita and I am following through with those plans, margarita in hand.

 

I discovered my love for margaritas under equally freakish weather conditions. Does anyone remember the warmest St. Patrick’s Day known to man? It was 2012, I was living in Syracuse and it was 80 degrees. Though I’ve travelled a lot, it was in Syracuse (of all places) on St. Patrick’s Day (of all holidays) that I discovered how much a good – not too sweet – margarita hits the spot.

 

I’ve always liked to add a splash of sparkling water to my margarita but since I’ve been on a kombucha kick lately, I’ve added that here instead. The kombucha makes this margarita a bit fizzy, tangy and tart: properties I’ve always liked in an alcoholic drink. Kombucha also adds an extra element of health which, of course, means you can enjoy more than one.

WHY IT’S HEALTHY// Kombucha is a lightly effervescent fermented food and, while there are many healthy claims associated with it, I drink it because it’s fermented. All fermented foods contain probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria needed for digestion and proper nutrient absorption. Fresh lime juice is high in vitamin C, which is great for the skin, digestion and is anti-inflammatory. Most commercial margaritas use a ton of refined sugar; this kombucha margarita is slightly sweetened from the kombucha and a pinch of stevia or honey, if desired. //

Kombucha margarita: a healthier take on the classic margarita. Made with fresh lime juice and kombucha, these are fizzy, tart and just a tad sweet; the perfect summer cocktail!
Author:
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • sea salt or flaky kosher salt for the rim
  • 3 oz tequila
  • 3 oz triple sec or Cointreau (see notes)
  • 3 oz fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • stevia or honey to taste
  • 6 oz plain kombucha
Instructions
  1. Run a lime wedge along the rim of the glass and dip in the salt.
  2. Shake all the ingredients except the kombucha with ice in a cocktail shaker until the exterior frosts.
  3. Add the komchua and give a quick stir.
  4. Strain into a glass over rocks, or into a cocktail glass without ice. Garnish with a slice of lime, if desired.
Notes
Use 100% agave tequila (“100% de agave”). Otherwise, you may be drinking 49% fermented cane sugar.

Cointreau is more alcoholic than Triple Sec. Either will work, but use Cointreau if you like a boozier tasting margarita.

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!

    I think what you published was very logical. But, what about this?

    what if you wrote a catchier post title? I mean, I
    don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what
    if you added a post title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Kombucha Margaritas is a
    little plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how
    they create article headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve
    got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
