recipe // healthy kombucha cocktail with pomelo + sage

Enjoy your seasonal citrus in this bright and fizzy cocktail!

Confession: I don’t know what this cocktail recipe tastes like with the whiskey. The truth is that I’m attempting to go the entire month of January without drinking (aka Drynuary), so I could only taste test this one as a mocktail! Oops… but let’s be real here, whiskey just makes everything better. I knew I wanted to share a healthy cocktail with you guys this month, so we combined the delicious citrus flavor of pomelo with the effervescence and deliciously sour taste of kombucha. Even if you’re taking the month off from booze, this recipe is heavenly.

I don’t really know what compelled me to try this Drynuary thing… maybe because I can’t remember the last time I went more than a week without drinking? So you can imagine how tough it was to shoot this recipe! All of the citrus that’s in season is so perfect for cocktails.

The kombucha adds a certain fermented flavor and fizziness to the tart pomelo juice. It’s simply refreshing! Also, I really like pulp, but if you’re not into that, use a fine mesh strainer to strain it before you make your drink.
