Kombucha Mule – Gluten-Free Cocktail Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces vodka (high-quality for best flavor)
  • 6 ounces ginger kombucha (choose a brand you enjoy)
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • Ice
  • Copper mug (traditional, but optional)
  • Lime wedge and/or fresh ginger slices (for garnish)

Instructions

  • Fill the mug: Fill your copper mug (or a standard highball glass) with ice.
  • Add the spirits: Pour the vodka over the ice.
  • Top with kombucha: Slowly add the ginger kombucha, leaving a bit of room at the top.
  • The citrus touch: Squeeze in the juice from the half lime. Give it a gentle stir to combine.
  • Garnish: Add a lime wedge and/or a few thin slices of fresh ginger for a flavor boost and visual appeal.
  • Enjoy! Sip and savor the refreshing, subtly tangy flavors.

Customization Tips:

  • Flavor variations: Experiment with different flavored kombuchas (gingerberry, citrus, etc.)
  • Switch the spirit: Gin makes a fantastic alternative to vodka.
  • Sweetness adjustment: If you find it too tart, add a tiny splash of simple syrup or honey to taste.
  • Make it a mocktail: For a delicious non-alcoholic option, simply omit the vodka.

Important Reminder: Kombucha naturally contains a small amount of alcohol due to the fermentation process. While usually less than 0.5%, be mindful if this is a concern.
