Overhead shot of kombucha in glasses

It’s no secret that we at Spoiled To Perfection are kombucha fans! The refreshing fermented tea beverage has certainly risen in popularity over the years, and whereas you’d once be hard-pressed to find it outside of health food and specialty stores, it’s now readily available nearly everywhere! We’ve seen recipes using kombucha for all manner of things, but one of our favorite new uses for kombucha is as a cocktail additive. When we first heard about this use we were intrigued but were pretty sure that it would taste great- and it does! We created three delicious cocktails that are sure to tickle your taste buds. The sweet and sour flavor of kombucha pairs perfectly with spirits, and adds a great fizz to your drinks, much like tonic or seltzer water. Just make sure you add in you kombucha last, to ensure your drink is at it’s bubbly finest!
