Kombucha Sangria

Post image for 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

Picnik collage1

Directions:

Pour it all into a pitcher, mix, and chill!

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!)
