Happy New Year loves! To celebrate the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, we’ve developed some super tasty and refined-sugar free cocktails!
This is a take on a traditional Moscow Mule, we’ve used Ginger Kombucha, which will make your gut feel and work great given the fermented goodness of kombucha. This recipe can also be adapted to be a Dark and Stormy by replacing the vodka with Dark Rum.
Ginger Kombucha Mule Recipe
1 1/2 oz vodka ( we used Tito’s )
1/2 oz lime juice
1/2 cup ginger kombucha ( we used Tonica )
Lime twist garnish
Fill a glass (tin Moscow mule mug if you have one) with a few ice cubes and set it aside for later. Using a y-shaped peeler, create a few ribbons of lime peel to use as a garnish later. Be sure to have as little rind as possible on the peel, as the white rind of the lime can add bitterness to the final cocktail. To make a perfect ribbon of lime twist, you can trim the edges straight with a sharp knife or kitchen shears.
Juice the lime into a separate container and measure out 1/2 oz of the juice using a cocktail
jigger into the glass. Next, measure out 1 1/2 oz of vodka and add it to the lime juice and ice. Top up the glass with ginger kombucha, and garnish with a lime twist on the rim of the glass.
Here’s to 2017 bringing you health and happiness!
Happy New Year!
