This sublime fruity cocktail has a silky smoothness you will love! The bite from the lime juice is offset by the creaminess of the apricot liqueur; and the tanginess of the kombucha marries well with the juniper overtones of gin. Perfection.
For one cocktail:
3 1/2 tablespoons (1 3/4 ounces) gin
1/4 cup (2 ounces) Traditional Kombucha Wonder Drink
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) apricot liqueur
Lime slice to garnish
Combine the gin, kombucha, lime juice, and apricot liqueur in shaker. Fill with crushed ice and shake. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish.
Our kombucha makes an innovative base for marinades. The acidity helps tenderize meats as well as adding a nice zing.

One of our favorite cuisines is Lebanese – pita bread, lamb, falafel, baba ganoush, and hummus… YUM. The creamy salad that traditionally accompanies these dishes is Tzatziki, a yogurt/cucumber concoction. This version is a twist on that, which incorporates a healthy splash of kombucha.
