Using kombucha to compose your favourite cocktail will result in a drink that is bubbly, refreshing and better for you than its conventional high-sugar counterparts (or so we like to think). This citrus kombucha margarita combines lime, chilli and tequila with kombucha to become something perfectly suited to sipping at home — and the fact that you can buy kombucha from the supermarket makes it even more accessible during lockdown times.
Citrus Kombucha Margarita Recipe
2 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp salt
⅓ cup of 100 percent agave tequila
¼ cup of Cointreau
1 orange, juiced
2 limes, juiced (retain skin to run along the rim)
¾ cup of original flavour kombucha
Mint leaves to garnish
1. Mix chilli powder and salt on a small plate and rub a lime wedge along the rims of two glasses before dipping them in the salt-chilli mix.
2. Except for the kombucha and mint, put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice.
3. Place large cubes of ice in each glass before pouring the mixture over, filling about 3/4 of the glasses.
4. Top up with kombucha, garnish with mint and serve.
