This Kombucha Margarita is going to be your favorite new cocktail. Move over cro-nut (or whatever new fancy food hybrid is trendy these days) there’s a new epic combo in town. That’s right, your favorite fizzy probiotic fermented tea just got a whole lot more fun with a splash of tequila, triple sec and lime. Plus, how fun is kombucha-rita to say? Am I right?
I am so into this drink. Margaritas are already an incredible combo of tequila, lime and citrus liquor. Adding fizzy, ferment-y ginger kombucha just takes it to the next level of summer refreshment.
It’s funny, as I was whipping up this bad boy I was thinking about ordering drinks when you go out. If I’m sitting down for a nice meal I like trying different cocktails if there’s a thoughtfully crafted menu. However, when you’re out, ordering at the bar is a whole other game.
For so long I was always so flustered and nervous. I never knew how to order or what I even wanted. For some reason I just felt like I was being critically judged by the entire establishment for whatever came out of my mouth. Like hmm was that drink “casually cool” enough. Did I sound like I knew what I was talking about? Reality check: no one gave a flying flip about what I was drinking. One of my go to moves was just to listen in on what other people were getting and copy their order. Ugh! How lame Georgie?!
Now at least I kind of have a rotation of dranks I like to enjoy. Sometimes it’s a whisky ginger, sometimes it’s just a shot of tequila or if I like the bartender I’ll just ask them to make me something fun with whatever alcohol I like. This has resulted in some pretty amazing drinks…. even if I’m not quite sure how they were made.
Basically the moral of the story is, drink what you like and don’t give a damn what other people might think, because more often than not they aren’t thinking about you at all. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.
Hopefully, if we’re lucky, bars will start serving kombucha cocktails, but until then, you can make this killer kombucha-rita at home with just 4 ingredients.
- 2 oz of tequila
- 3 oz of ginger kombucha
- 1 oz of triple sec
- ¼ of a lime, squeezed
- Fill a rocks glass with ice
- Add tequila, ginger kombucha, triple sec and squeeze the quarter lime
- Stir lightly until all liquids have mixed
