Kombucha Sangria

This recipe idea came to me one day when I was out for drinks with a couple friends sipping on sangria. The restaurant we were at made a carbonated sangria. Sipping it down, I had a stroke of genius right then and there. I wondered what it would be like to use Kombucha instead of whatever club soda/sprite type thing they used (Kombucha is a fermented drink said to bolster immunity and be good for one’s health). So a week later I tried it out. It still had that fruity flavor with a kick of bubbles like the one at the restaurant, and the Kombucha served as a nice contribution to keep it from getting too sweet. It was also extremely easy to make. Needless to say, it’s delicious, and I stand by my statement that the idea was truly a stroke of genius. Let me know if you agree =)

Ingredients:

3 Cups Fruit Juice (I used cranberry/rassberry)

6oz Pineapple Juice

16oz Kombucha

2 Cups red wine or non alcoholic wine

2 Cups Sliced Strawberries

2 Cups Sliced Pineapple

  1. well this is really the best..
    i drink kombucha everyday and this can make variation without lessing its usefulness
    yes this is GENIUS.. =]

  2. Amazing, I cannot believe I just saw this on Twitter, as I just made a variation of this with white wine, this weekend. Going to try the red one next.

    2 Cups brewed Yogi Kombucha Green Tea
    3 Cups White Wine (I used Chardonnay-what I had on hand)
    ½-cup Orange Juice (I used Trop50)
    ¼ Lime Juice
    ¼ Lemon Juice
    3 Tablespoons Agave Syrup
    Mint Leaves
    Muddle the mint leaves and agave syrup together in a large pitcher. Add all other ingredients, stir. Refrigerate at least 2-hours.
    Fill large glass with ice, ¾ of wine mixture, add carbonated water (I have also tried with flavored carbonated waters…lemon, lime, peach, key lime, etc…awesome!)

  3. great idea! i love kombucha! @vanessa you can buy kombucha at any whole foods or natural food stores-check in your grocery store’s natural food aisle too!
