To start April off with a bang we wanted to give our loyal Pioneers a little treat, which is why we are rewarding you for your whiskey lovin’ with not one, but two cocktails this Whiskey Wednesday. No need to thank us. Although you may want to after you find out that not only will our Whiskey Wednesday cocktails get you a little drunkered up tonight, but also have energy-boosting abilities as well as other health benefits. That’s right, we’re jumping on the “health-craze” wagon and showing you how to whip up some sweet Kombucha Whiskey Cocktails.

 

If you are like most Americans, chances are you have been hit hard by the #CleanEating trend going on right now. And if you are like most of us, you have been living off of veggies, coffee, kombucha, and whiskey since you set your New Year’s Resolution in January. For the rest of you who are still trying to pronounce kombucha and failed at your New Year’s Resolution on January 2nd, here’s what you need to know: Kombucha is a probiotic brew of tea fermented with yeast and bacteria. It also has tons of health benefits including improved digestion, mental clarity, increased energy, and mood stability. Yeah, it’s the stuff that your vegan friends are all ranting and raving about every time you get stuck in a conversation with them. Well we’re here to combine your love for whiskey and your desire (or need) to be healthy with the following kombucha and whiskey cocktails:

 

Pomegranate Whiskey Cocktail:

 

4 oz. kombucha

2 oz. Lost Republic whiskey

Seeds of ¼ pomegranate

Ice cubes

 

First, remove the seeds from a pomegranate using a spoon then place the seeds in a glass and pour in the whiskey and kombucha. Mix it all together and add ice cubes when ready to serve.

Minty Lime Kombucha Cocktail:

 

4 oz. kombucha

2 oz. Lost Republic whiskey

5-6 fresh mint leaves

⅛ teaspoon Agave

Juice from half of a lime

Ice cubes

 

Begin by thinly slicing the mint leaves. Place the mint leaf slices at the bottom of a serving glass with the juice from half a lime and several drops of Agave. Use a mortar mash for several seconds to mash up the ingredients. Add kombucha and whiskey then add ice cubes when ready to serve.


Cheers, Pioneers!
