Our kombucha is not only good when you're not drinking, but also the perfect mixer for when you are.
Here are a few ideas to get you going on your kombucha mixology path.
Or check out our cocktail in a can - Happy Hour Kombucha!
A non-alcoholic option that perfectly replaces a mulled cider. Yes, heating the kombucha will mess with the probiotics, but this is still a great alternative to the boozey version.
2 bottles of Love Kombucha
4 strips of lemon peel
6 bruised cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise
Honey to taste
Bring kombucha to the boil. Remove from heat and add ingredients. Leave to steep with lid on for 20mins.
The Pink Lady
30ml Seedlip Spice
1 Tbs crushed pineapple
Shake ice, pineapple and Seedlip Spice in a shaker. Strain into a cocktail saucer. Top with Love.
The Awaroa Aperitivo
Rolling like a Roman with our version of the Spritz.
30ml Aperitivo (our fave is Peychaud's, but Campari and Aperol are great to)
Top with kombucha (our oak barrel kombucha is the best in this one, but use GYPSY as a back up). Build over ice and stir!
The Helensville Villain
Villains of old all loved good gin, and this one is no exception.
30ml really good gin
Build over ice with a squeeze of lime.
The Lady Helen
Named after Lady Helen McLeod, the founding Mama of Helensville, this is our take on the classic Cointreau Fizz.
Juice of half a lemon
Fill a highball with ice. Add lemon juice and Cointreau. Top with GYPSY. Stir. Garnish with lemon rind.
The Kaipara Harbour
Our take on the Caiprihana (if you pronounce it like a kiwi, it sounds like The Kaipara Harbour, which is right where all our booch is made).
4 lime wedges
Add vodka to ice in a glass. Squeeze out all the lime juice and add the lime wedges. Top with WARRIOR.
