Cocktail Recipe with Kombucha: “Dark & Devoted” a Delicious Rum & Ginger Booch Drink!

The "Dark & Devoted", one of the most requested Kombucha Cocktail Recipes at Culture Shock in Ithaca NY

Kombucha Cocktail Recipes: The “Dark & Devoted”

Last week, we introduced you to the uber-hip fermentation cafe Culture Shock in Ithaca, NY (closed), and one of owner Marian Flaxman’s favorite Kombucha Cocktail Recipes, the “Twisted Bliss”.

This week, bar manager, Corey shares the recipe for his favorite Kombucha concoction, “Dark and Devoted.”

The Kocktail adaptation is Culture Shock’s twist on the Dark and Stormy, a sweet, yet tart ginger delight.

Dark rum gives this Kocktail its kick. Or try it as a Mocktail if you prefer! 🙂

Hannah Crum, the Kombucha Mamma!KMAMMA SEZ…
I love Kombucha Kocktails! It’s an excellent way to marry the unique flavor profile of Kombucha with your favorite bitters, alcohol and aromatics. Especially because when I add Kombucha to the mix, I get a little antidote with my poison. The next day, I don’t feel the same negative impact as when consuming alcohol alone. Plus I can enjoy more than one cocktail in an evening if it has Kombucha. Without the booch, I feel woozy and gross. Check out the other Kocktail and Mocktail recipes below!
