Brew Up A Little Kombucha Love
Ok, so everyone knows Valentine’s Day is a corporate holiday, right? All the flowers, chocolates, and jewelry are just a means of bleeding hard-earned bucks from your wallet. And you probably also know that the harder you try to make romance happen, the less likely it is to work. But now that we have all that unpleasantness out of the way, let’s talk about the one thing that, be it Valentine’s Day or simply Wednesday, brings people together: cocktails.
Shaking up a cocktail is a quick, simple, celebratory way to toast to true love or or a delicious alternative to death-by-chocolate-cake. And if mixology gives you the jitters (”What’s a jigger? Do I really have to buy rhubarb bitters? How did I just spend $50 on this cocktail?”), fear not! This recipe is easy and affordable, and full of probiotics.
Whether or not the probiotics offset the alcohol is another matter, but this is a special occasion. And a big part of kombucha’s appeal is that it just tastes really delicious. The probiotics are like icing on the cake, if you will. And the subtle floral notes of Brew Dr.’s Love Kombucha are the perfect alternative to a bouquet of flowers, and far tastier. So here’s to true love, friendship, good company, and kombucha.
1 tablespoon fresh lavender flowers, plus 2 lavender buds for garnish
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ cup Brew Dr. Love Kombucha
¼ cup vodka
In a glass, muddle lavender and lemon juice. Fill glass with ice, and pour in kombucha and vodka. Stir well until chilled. Strain into 2 chilled glasses. Garnish with lavender buds.
