Mocktails are becoming a huge trend this summer. They are refreshing, made with simple ingredients, and allow you to hydrate when you get bored of plain water. It’s important to stay hydrated in this East Coast sunshine — that’s how you keep your skin glowing, and we have the perfect mocktail to do it.
Kombucha is full of health benefits, from keeping your gut bacteria healthy to improving your immune system. It also helps that kombucha has that fermented taste we all love from our cocktails, which makes it the perfect compliment for a mocktail that tastes sorta like the real thing.
The kombucha ingredient makes this mocktail recipe ideal for warm summer days ahead, it’s made with all fresh ingredients and is certainly a healthier alternative to soda or overly sugared lemonade. The grapefruit juice adds that refreshing squeeze of juice and the kombucha gives it the fizz. Feel free to experiment around with this recipe, whether you try out different flavors of kombucha, different types of fresh squeezed juice, or different types of herbs. Below is our recipe for an amazing grapefruit and rosemary kombucha mocktail:
Grapefruit + Rosemary Kombucha Fresca Mocktail
- 1 freshly squeezed grapefruit
- 1 cup of unflavored kombucha (or flavored if you want to get adventurous, we prefer AquaVita Tap Kombucha near our cafe)
- 1 tsp of agave (located in aisle 7)
- 2 sprigs of rosemary
- optional: tonic to top off from aisle 8 (we all love a good fizz)
In a pitcher, mix the grapefruit juice, kombucha and agave. Pour over two glasses with ice, add a sprig of rosemary to each and top off with some tonic if you desire. Make sure to activate the oils in the rosemary by rubbing the sprig between your hands, this way it infuses your drink as you sip!
