Quick and Easy Sangria with Kombucha

This Quick and Easy Sangria with Kombucha is a fruity & fun drink for any occasion!

Biology

When it comes to alcohol, I like simple drinks so we stick to wine and and beer at home, maybe a margarita or Moscow Mule.

I created this easy sangria with the same idea in mind. If it wasn’t going to be simple, I would likely never make it again.

I love how it turned out and think I can handle adding this to my repertoire. Sangria is a wine-based cocktail that typically includes fruit and brandy. I swapped out the brandy for the super nutritious Kombucha!

glass with fruitSangria can be made ahead of time to let the fruit flavors marry with the booze, but this was a quick 2 minute drink. I took some chopped fruit and put it in a glass, drizzled a little honey in there, a squeeze of lime and topped it with Kombucha and a light Pinot Noir.

I love Kombucha (if you’re not familiar, it’s a fermented drink with health benefits) and I was super excited to try this new-to-me brand at the Foodie Boot Camp, Mamchari Kombucha. I used the Lavender Honey flavor which is DELICIOUS, but you could use any Kombucha.

It looks like they are exclusive to Utah, but I am going to have to ask our Whole Foods if they will start carrying them.

Glasses with fruit

Pinot Noir is a nice light red wine for sangria but you could also use a Merlot or Cabernet. If you use cold Kombucha and wine then you don’t need to add ice.

Fermentation in food processingMake sure to use a good quality one too!

This was so fun to make, I might have to start branching out and experimenting! What is your favorite holiday cocktail?
