In recent years, it's been promoted by the health-conscious as an elixir of sorts, a drink that may or may not help you fight off that summer cold, fatigue, or just simply bad Juju. This fermented tea beverage may even help maintain a healthy digestive tract and liver. But did you know that it also tastes great with booze?
There's nothing complicated about boozin’ with booch, but there are a few things you should keep in mind:
So why not “Detox while you Re-tox”… Here are a few of our favorite Cocktails aka Boochtails…
Sanboocha, a wonderfully fizzy, fresh and flavorful Sangria!
Add the fruit and mint into the bottom of the pitcher. Pout the wine, kombucha, orange juice and brandy over top. Serve over ice with the fruit in the glass! Need a bit more fizz, add some sparkling water or club soda.
Moscow Booch, our take on the mule and no muddling required!
Fizzy, strongly-flavored beverage, kombucha, and swapping it in for another, the ginger beer for a healthy and wonderfully tasting cocktail.
In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine
Mix all together, shake until well-chilled, then strain into a tall glass with fresh ice. Top with 1 ounce of club soda, stir briefly, and garnish with a fresh thin slice of ginger.
Campari Boochy Spritz, the perfect Italian porch drink!
Light, slightly fizzy kombucha can stand up to some powerful flavors, like the one-two bitter punch of Campari and gin. The booch evens out the alcohol and adds a bright, fizzy character. Super easy to drink.
In a tall glass (highball) combine the Gin, Campari and booch. Give a quick stir and add the club soda or Sparkling water. Garnish with orange slices.
Boochy Strawberry Mojito, the perfect summertime cocktail!
In a small bowl muddle the strawberries (hold back a couple for garnishing), 4 mint leaves and lime juice with a until strawberries form a puree. Divide the puree among two large cocktail glasses (Mason Jars work well for this drink) and add in 8 oz.of Booch, 2 oz. of vodka per glass, and a splash of sparkling water. Fill the rest with ice. Tip: This is a great make ahead drink for flavor enhancement and just add in the sparkling water before serving.
