To each and every party, I bring my trusty kombucha. This refreshing, probiotic-rich drink is the absolute best alternative to a boozy beverage. You still like you’re participating in the fun but without the hangover.
1 gallon of brewed + ready to go kombucha
1/2 cup hibiscus tea
2 cinnamon sticks
2 – 3 Tbsp grated ginger root
2 juicy limes
Once the first brew of your kombucha is complete, it’s time to start the second ferment:
Boil 2 cups water and pour over hibiscus leaves/tea. Let steep for 20 minutes.
Once tea is cool, add the juice of two limes *A fork works well for juicing* & the cinnamon sticks.
Pour equal parts of this concoction into a couple of quart jars, or something similar. Then, pour the pre-brewed kombucha over top of each and seal with a tight fitting lid.
Let the contents of the jars ferment for 2 – 4 days. They should bubble and fizz when they’re ready.
Enjoy over ice on a hot summer day, or pour into pretty glass jars and take to the party.
Store in glass jars in the refrigerator. I love using recycled Grolsch beer bottles with those great pop tops.
