Neighborhood block parties, poolside weekends or cookouts with your family are some of the best ways to spend hot months. Along with the fresh fruit, potato salad and your favorite grilled veggies it just wouldn’t be summer without a refreshing drink to cool you down. While some of your friends or family might be reaching for an adult beverage, you or your guests may want to join in on the festivities without the booze. Don’t worry, you can party alcohol-free and not be left out!
Kombucha is a fermented, often fizzy, slightly tart tea drink. Its effervescent quality makes it a perfect ingredient for this mocktail or other DIY non-alcoholic drinks.
You can also create virgin mimosas, sangria and other beverages! What is your favorite drink you’d like to see made with kombucha? Comment below!
