3 Holiday Kombucha Mocktails to Keep You Merry and Bright

3 Holiday Kombucha Mocktails to Keep You Merry and Bright
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Decorations are going up, smells of cinnamon and clove are all around and spirits are lifted, but if you're dreading the holiday bloating and hangovers, you’re not alone. The holiday season is one of indulgence and excess, but there are ways to celebrate that won’t leave you feeling like garbage.

Mocktails are a fantastic way to get creative, show off your mixology skills, and reduce your alcohol intake without sacrificing a tasteful beverage. Kombucha is one of the best bases for mocktails, as it’s slightly sweet and brings a little fizz and tartness. The best part is that the bacterial culture in kombucha is a probiotic, aiding digestion and reducing bloating, so you can spend the evening comfortable and wake up feeling great.

To showcase just how delicious and versatile mocktails can be, we whipped up three recipes with Wild Tea Kombucha's Wild Ginger and Raspberry Hops Kombuchas. Wow your friends with the sophisticated Vegan Raspberry Hops Sour at your next get-together, sip the spicy Mulled Mule with a good book in front of the fire, or level up the family game night with the Cranberry Ginger Holiday Punch!

Note: Our on tap kombucha is 15% off until November 29!
