Kombucha has been a trend long enough that it is safe to say it is a drink that is here to stay. Now is the time to ditch the usual mixes you use in your favourite cocktails and use kombucha instead.
There’s nothing complicated about making kombucha cocktails, but there are a few things you should note:
- Add the kombucha last. You don’t want the carbonation to go flat
- Taste your kombucha before you use it in a cocktail, some is sweeter than others. Adjust accordingly.
- You can make mocktails too!
- Because of its tartness, kombucha works the best in sour drinks like a margarita, sangria, or a whiskey sour.
Here are 3 kombucha cocktail drinks you should make this holiday season!

A margarita has this tropical, summer vibe associated with its name. But if you are like me and love a nice refreshing margarita any time of year, this one is perfect with a little holiday season spin to it.Print
Salt for rim
Lime wedge (for salting the rim and garnish)
