Just because you're avoiding booze doesn't mean you have to miss out on the fun when it comes to fancy drinks, right?
Whether you're feb-fasting for a short time, prefer to avoid alcohol altogether, or just feel like enjoying a booze-free bevvie, we reckon a kombucha mocktail is the perfect remedy (see what we did there?).
This lovely concoction - adapted from a recipe by The Core Health - ups the fancy factor big time by featuring flavoured ice cubes and a homemade compote. We guarantee you won't feel like you're missing out one bit.
4-5 thyme sprigs (1 tablespoon leaves removed)
1 cup blueberries
750ml bottle Remedy Kombucha Original
1.5 cups organic frozen or fresh blueberries
2 tbs water
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
2 tbsp chia seeds
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Make ice cubes by place 2-3 lavender leaves and 2-3 blueberries in the holes of an empty ice cube tray, cover with filtered water and place in the freezer to set over night.
To make the blueberry compote combine 1.5 cups of frozen or fresh blueberries with all other ingredients into a small saucepan over a simmering heat.
Once the berries have been cooked through and stewed for around 5-6 minutes remove from the heat and mash with a fork, allow to cool slightly before stirring in the chia seeds, sit.
To assemble, add in the ice cubes, a few fresh blueberries plus a lashing of the compote, your spirit of choosing, then top with Remedy Kombucha.
