Fun Summer Cocktails and Other Recipes with Health-Ade Kombucha #FollowYourGut

Fun with Health-Ade Kombucha in more ways than one.


Summer #FollowYourGut Fun with Health-Ade Kombucha!

We partnered with Health-Ade Kombucha this summer to celebrate the launch of their refreshing, new Jalapeño-Kiwi-Cucumber flavor, AKA your new #SummerSideKick!

For some background, we work in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn, which doesn't get much of a breeze (understatement of the year!). Plus, on a standard work day, we might be baking a few dozen pretzels, testing a new pie recipe or working on a new pasta technique. In other words, it gets HOT. Enter Health-Ade Kombucha and an instant reset, refresh and moment of zen. The new Jalapeño-Kiwi-Cucumber flavor is slightly spicy, slightly sweet and has the perfect hit of fizz to quench your thirst. Bonus points if you slug the whole thing down directly in front of the AC. 

As much as we love the 'booch straight from the bottle, we also had a ton of fun playing around with it in a few different recipes. First up was a batch of Jalapeño-Kiwi-Cucumber Kombucha Tequila Gimlets. We froze the bubbly probiotic tea into ice cubes and topped them with a mix of tequila, fresh lime juice and a touch of simple syrup. Tailor-made for summer happy hours! Once we tasted the ice cubes from the cocktail recipe, we knew we had to take things one step further and turn the same mix into Ice Pops; and trust us, the results did not disappoint. Watch all the magic unfold from FeedfeedBrooklyn below:

Want to make a batch of these tequila gimlets at home? Here's the quick & easy recipe!
