We’ve been having way too much fun making kombucha mocktails lately! It just seems like there’s an endless amount of flavor combinations to be made.
And while mocktails is the official title that everyone is using, I kind of like ‘kombucha concoctions’ better. It just has a better ring to it, however I just went with the prevailing term. Whatever you want to call these, they’re delicious, and the perfect way to cool down in the summer heat at the end of the day.
This whole kombucha habit started back around Mother’s Day when we mixed together the Gingerberry flavor from GT’s kombucha with freshly squeezed orange juice. Since it was really, really good, we just started experimenting with other combinations after that.
It’s also helped me branch out and try other flavors of kombucha. It’s all too easy just to reach for my favorite flavor, but I even bought the Lavender Love to try it out. Lavender in kombucha sounded equal parts intriguing and kind of yucky at the same time. But as it would happen, I ended up loving it!
You can use any brand of kombucha you’d like to make your own combos. I just recommend GT’s brand because I love their flavors, (this isn’t sponsored or anything).
For the ‘recipes’ I’ve just given our favorite combos so far with fairly loose measurements. Normally I like to be precise, but there’s really no need to measure, and you can mix it all together to your taste. I sometimes add more of less of the different ingredients called for, just depending on my mood, and what I have on hand.
So I sure hope you enjoy these because they’ve been a go-to staple in our house this summer. Also I’d love to hear your favorite combos as well!Print
These 5 Easy Kombucha Mocktails are just the beginning of all the fun combos you can come up with! They’re easy to make, & the perfect addition to any meal!
1 – 16 ounce bottle Lavender Love kombucha
1 can Apricot LaCroix, or flavored sparkling water of choice, see notes
6 leaves lemon balm, crushed
Sweetener to taste if desired, see notes
1–16 ounce bottle Passionberry kombucha
1 can Mango LaCroix, or 1 bottle Mango Madness kombucha
Optional: add 2 Tablespoons pureed mango if you have mangos on hand
6 mint leaves, crushed
2–6 slices jalapeno, add to your taste
1 – 16 ounce bottle Gingerberry kombucha
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, add more or less to taste
Garnish with orange slices and mint leaves
1 – 16 ounce bottle Watermelon Wonder kombucha
1 cup watermelon juice, see notes
1 lime, juiced
8–10 mint leaves, crushed
1 – 16 ounce bottle Guava Goddess kombucha
1 can Passionfruit LaCroix, or 1 bottle Passionberry kombucha
Add any of the following: jalapeno slices, mint, lemon balm, or fresh passion fruit if you can find it
For any of the combinations, pour the ingredients together into glasses with the herbs/garnishes called for. Add as much ice as you’d like and enjoy right away!
Recipes number 1,2, and 5 fill 2 – 16 ounce glasses after you add ice and garnishes. It can also serve up to 4 people in smaller glasses. Recipes 3 and 4 make 2 – 12 ounce mocktails.
All the different flavors of kombucha called for are the GT’s brand.
We like all of these mocktails without sweetener, but feel free to add some in to any of the combinations.
To make the watermelon juice, place 2 cups cubed watermelon into a blender. Blend until smooth, then strain through a fine mesh sieve. You should have around 1 cup watermelon juice.
We’ve been using LaCroix to mix into our kombucha, but you can use any flavored sparkling water in it’s place. Since ‘natural flavors’ is an ambiguous ingredient, we’ve been looking for something without natural flavors to replace it.
