Well it feels like Summer is upon us (ok it's only May but who cares!!!)
We've planned in a few bbq's, and of course there is the Jubilee bank holiday coming up, so we've been working on our 'sharing' cocktails. Something you can make in bulk, something eye-catching and of course something that is delicious.
And so that leads us to one of the most delicious creations- the Buch and Ginger. Not only does it ticks all of the above points, it's also healthy, great for your gut, and will most certainly be something that your guests have not tried before.
A delicious blend of lemon, ginger and pineapple gives this cocktail a lovely tropical twist without being too overpowering. We've used a beautiful organic maple syrup as the sweetener. You don't need much- we've used two tablespoons in this recipe, but if you need more or less feel free to adapt it to your personal taste.
We're a big fan of kombucha cocktails- anything that can be deemed 'healthy' whilst being fun is a winner for us. Good for your gut as well as helping to rid your body of toxins and boosting your energy. There are also claims that Kombucha helps boost your immune system, helps you lose weight, wards off high blood pressure and lowers your risk of heart disease!
Oh, one last thing- this cocktail is booze-free, but you could always add 400ml of your favourite gin or vodka to the mix if you really wanted to spice things up!
Recipe- (1 litre, serves 5-8)
500ml pineapple juice (freshly juiced if possible, or a non-concentrate version)
50ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp organic maple syrup
2 organic lemons sliced (unwaxed)- 1 for garnish
Strips of fresh ginger for garnish
1. Slice a lemon and pop it into a jug.
2. Add the maple syrup and fresh lemon juice- and a splash of the pineapple juice. Give it a thorough stir.
3. Add the pineapple juice, stir and add the kombucha.
4. Add ice, stir and serve!
5. Garnish each glass with a lemon wheel and a sliver of ginger.
If you liked the sound of this recipe you're bound to like our award-winning Grapefruit Margarita! Available as a single bottle or in a gift-box of three. It's made with organic agave and organic orange blossom!
