Ingredients for the Kombucha Mojito

  • 1-2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons of organic cane sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 4-6 fresh mint leaves
  • Ice cubes
  • Soda water (optional, for extra fizz)
  • Lime slices and mint sprigs for garnish

Instructions to Make the Kombucha Mojito

1. Prepare the Ingredients:

  • Wash the mint leaves and lime thoroughly.
  • Juice the lime to obtain fresh lime juice.
  • Gather the kombucha, sugar, and ice cubes.

2. Muddle the Mint:

  • Place the fresh mint leaves at the bottom of a sturdy glass.
  • Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently crush the mint leaves. This releases the oils and flavor.

3. Add Lime Juice and Sugar:

  • Pour the freshly squeezed lime juice over the muddled mint leaves.
  • Sprinkle the organic cane sugar into the glass.
  • Stir gently to dissolve the sugar and infuse the mint flavor.

4. Add the Kombucha:

  • Pour the desired amount of kombucha into the glass. Adjust the quantity based on your preference for sweetness and tartness.
  • Stir well to combine the ingredients.

5. Add the Ice:

  • Fill the glass with ice cubes to chill the drink and add a refreshing touch.

6. Optional: Top with Soda Water:

  • For an extra fizzy and bubbly texture, top off the drink with a splash of soda water. This step is optional but adds effervescence to the mojito.

7. Garnish and Serve:

  • Garnish the drink with a lime slice and a sprig of fresh mint for an appealing presentation.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy the invigorating flavors of your homemade Kombucha Mojito.

Tips for the Best Kombucha Mojito

  • Experiment with different flavors of kombucha to customize your mojito. Fruity or floral varieties can add unique dimensions to the drink.
  • Adjust the sweetness and tartness by varying the amount of sugar and lime juice according to your taste preferences.
  • To enhance the presentation, serve the mojito in a tall glass with a colorful straw.
  • Fresh ingredients are key to achieving the best flavors, so use high-quality mint leaves and ripe limes.
