Cranberry & Rosemary Kombucha Spritz

Well, Here. We. Go. #ThirstyThursday Holiday Edition Round 2๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป, Who’s exciteddd!!ย 

It doesn’t get more Festive than a Cranberry & Rosemary Cocktail, am I right? It’s pink, It’s delicious, *and* it’s healthy because we’re topping it off with some delicious Kombucha๐Ÿ˜‰. Now, if you are in the Moncton area, I used the delicious local Kissing Rocks Kombucha in this cocktails. Which is legit, one of the best Kombucha’s I’ve had. And, why not support some local ladies when we can right? These girls are killing it with all the seasonal flavours too. Their Cranberry/Apple Kombucha was exactly what I needed to fizz up this cocktail.ย Now, if you can’t get your hands on some of this awesomeness, don’t panic. Go to your local Farmers Market or Health Food Store and I’m sure you can find an alternative. But if you can… Go. For. It๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป!!ย 

So besides being๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜, this Cocktail is Darn tasty and is sure to impress anyone you have over during the holidays #winning. Let me brake it down for you!

Cranberry & Rosemary Simple Syrup: You make this SS like all the others. Equal parts sugar and water and add 1 cup fresh/frozen cranberries + 5-6 sprigs of fresh rosemary. THEN (this is the exciting part) Once the SS has boiled and the berries and herbs have infused the syrup, you strain it for your cocktail. Don’t you dare get rid of those sweetened rosemary infused cranberries… can you imagine that spread on a crostini with brie??!!! Hello Holiday Appetizer!! Listen, sometimes I have good ideas… this is ones of those times. Drinks/Apps Covered = #youwin, again!!!

Alcohol:ย I used Vodka, Gin would be equally delicious! You Pick. You’ll get more of that rosemary/herby flavour with gin, and vodka will be more of a neutral flavour. I do 1 1/2 – 2 ounces per cocktail… but… depending on the day you had, you be the judge of that. k๐Ÿ˜Š?

Lime Juice:ย Always need some acidity in a cocktail so, lime juice it is.ย Fresh Lime Juice, Always…

Kombucha:ย Like I mentioned, I used 2-3 ounces of the Kissing Rocks Kombucha Cranberry/Apple Kombucha per cocktail. It works great with the flavours we have going on here.

For 2 Cocktails:

  • 2 Ounces Cranberry & Rosemary Simple Syrup
  • 2 Ounces Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 3-4 Ounces Vodka or Gin
  • 4-6 Ounces Cranberry/Apple Kissing Rocks Kombucha, or Kombucha of your choice

In a shaker, combine the Simple Syrup, Lime Juice and Vodka or Gin. Add lots of Ice. Shake, shake, shake and strain in two cocktail glasses over ice. Top each cocktail with Cranberry/Apple Kombucha, garnish with fresh cranberries and fresh rosemary and you have yourself a P-A-R-T-A-Y!ย So Festive, So Pretty, SO GOOD!

Let’s all be safe & and drink responsibly, k? On that note, CHEERS and Happy Freaking Holidays๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰!!!!!!
