This Kombucha Moscow Mule recipe is flavored with juicy peaches and gut-healthy ginger kombucha. A delicious, easy-to-make cocktail or mocktail for summer!
Have you noticed all the kombucha cocktails popping up on menus and around the interwebs lately? We don't do a whole lot of mixed drinks around here (mostly because Dan keeps about 35 bottles of beer in his "cellar"—quotations because said cellar is actually the closet in our extra bedroom), but this whole kombucha concept seemed too good to pass up.
We're not totally new to the trend. A friend kindly made us a batch of ginger peach kombucha for our wedding a few years back. We added whiskey and called it a cocktail. Original trendsetters? I think so.
Regardless of how long they've been around, I had two thoughts before getting into my latest mixology venture: 1) ginger is hands down the best kombucha flavor and the only way to make it better is to add peach, and 2) it tastes a lot like the ginger beer that's used to make a traditional Moscow mule.
And so the Ginger Peach Kombucha Moscow Mule was born.
This cocktail starts with half a fresh peach. The riper the better. I just squeezed it over the copper mug the same way I'd juice a lime. In my opinion, it's fine if some of the pulp falls in, but if you care, you can run it through a strainer first. I used GT's Gingerade ginger kombucha, but if you can find a ginger-peach flavor, that'd be delicious, too!
Reasons I love this kombucha moscow mule? It's so easy to make (remember, cocktail newb right here!), and it has plenty of flavor with or without the vodka. Feel free to serve 'em up mocktail-style! Whaddya think—ready to get in on the kombucha-cocktail trend?
