3 Easy Kombucha Mocktails

I first learned about kombucha a few years ago when a coworker was telling me about healthy gut bacteria. Who knew that leaky gut was a thing? I sure didn’t! After she told me about the fermented drink, I was curious to try it and learn more about its health benefits. Essentially, kombucha is made by brewing together sugar, tea, liquid from a previous batch, and the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.

Drinking kombucha is said to have several health benefits, such as improving digestion, strengthening the immune system, and serving as a detoxifying drink. Kombucha also has probiotics, otherwise known as the good bacteria that keeps your gut healthy.

While on a zoom call with some friends a couple of weeks ago, I opted to grab a bottle of kombucha instead of wine. That is when I had the idea to create kombucha mocktails inspired by some of my favorite alcoholic beverages. Below are three recipes for drinks made with simple ingredients.

Whether you’re giving Whole30 a try during the quarantine, don’t drink alcohol, or are looking for a healthy alternative, give one of these drinks a go! They turned out pretty tasty. Cheers!
