Recipe: Kombucha cocktails

Equinox Kombucha cocktail bar

By Equinox Kombucha

Equinox Kombucha hosted its first alcoholic kombucha cocktail bar at the Taste of London event this summer. Classic cocktails were re-invented and mixed with one of Equinox's four funky kombucha flavours for a brand new taste sensation. There were five kick-ass cocktails on the menu: why not try them yourself at home?

Equinox Kombucha partnered with specific brands to design these cocktails, but all the spirits we used can be easily substituted if you find them hard to buy.

Kombucha Libre
50ml Papagayo spiced rum topped up with Equinox Kombucha Ginger and a squeeze of fresh lime, all served over crushed ice. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Kombucha Chilli Cooler
35ml of Arbikie chilli vodka topped up with Equinox Kombucha Original, a dash of vanilla bitters and Gomme syrup (can be substituted by 1tsp sugar), all served over crushed ice. Garnish with fresh sliced lime and a chilli pepper.

50ml Arbikie vodka and a dash of elderflower cordial topped up with Equinox Kombucha Raspberry & Elderflower, all served over crushed ice.
