I don’t make New Year’s resolutions but I do try to change-up my overall eating habits from time to time. This lead me to trying kombucha, a fermented, slightly effervescent beverage that promotes health benefits. Although the sugar content can be kind of high, depending on the brand, kombucha is said to help with inflammation and promote a healthy gut. I prefer the ginger flavored varieties and I just knew it would pair well with champagne or sparkling wine. And so I decided to make a Kombucha Mimosa. Kombucha comes in several flavors and most of them would probably work in a mimosa. There really isn’t a recipe for the Kombucha Mimosa. Like all mimosa making, it’s your preference. This tart cherry kombucha is PERFECT for mimosas. It’s not overly sweet and adds a really nice color to the drink (although it isn’t as red as you might think it should be!). This time of year, I’m usually drinking Spiced Pear Bellinis but because I’m already starting to think about lightening up, I decided to make the switch. I mean, I guess I could cut out drinking altogether…Add kombucha to your glass. Drinking kombucha is said to potentially help your mental state. So maybe consider drinking it alone sometime too. One bottle is usually about two servings so be careful you aren’t drinking too much (again, the sugars). For the mimosas, though, one regular sized kombucha bottle would make at least 4 mimosas. Top with champagne or sparkling wine. Taste and adjust. Or just keep tasting. A kombucha mimosa would be a nice surprise on your next mimosa bar. It would be a great version to serve at bridal and baby showers and, of course, is perfect for brunch! This new twist on the mimosa work any time of the year. I love all versions of mimosas, like watermelon mimosas, yum! But what I love about kombucha is that unlike fresh juices, a bottle of kombucha (if unopened) can last for quite a while. That makes planning for a party or brunch really easy. I especially like them out by the pool. The kombucha mimosa is refreshing and flavorful and the perfect thing to sip on whether you’re in a lounge chair or snuggled up on your couch in front of the television. And because kombucha has a little bit of fizz, you can even use that in place of sparkling wine to make a non-alcoholic kombucha mimosa like Goop did.
How to Make A Kombucha Mimosa
- 1 bottle Tart Cherry Kombucha (or other preferred flavor)
- 1 bottle of Champagne or Sparkling Wine
- In a flute or wine glass, add about ¼ of a cup of kombucha.
- Top with the desired amount of champagne.
- Drink and enjoy responsibly.
