Cocktail Recipe with Kombucha – “Twisted Bliss”

Although it’s now closed, this delicious “Twisted Bliss” Kombucha Cocktail Recipe came from KKamp friend Marian Flaxman’s Culture Shock Cafe formerly of Ithaca, NY, an early entry in the fermented foods revival.

Blueberry and ginger combine for a delightfully sweet bite, a sort of new millennium Cosmo.

I love Kombucha Kocktails! When I add Kombucha to the mix, I get a little antidote with my poison. The next day, I feel much better than when consuming alcohol alone. I can even have an extra cocktail if it has Kombucha. Without it, I feel pretty gross. Check out the other Kocktail and Mocktail recipes below!

Here is the recipe for Marian’s favorite Kombucha concoction, Twisted Bliss:

  1. Here’s a little something I do for christmas day with the now all grown up family.
    Blood Orange Mimosas:
    -kombucha secondary fermented with passion fruit juice and champagne yeast to ante up the ABV.
    -fresh squeezed juice from blood oranges which should be in season
    -use half and half portions in the chilled champagne glass and garnish with blood orange slice
    note: the longer you let the secondary ferment (try 1 month minimum) take place the better the kombucha tastes

    Then pair it next to:
    -kiwi or green melon flavored kombucha
    -dash of midori
    -dash of vodka
    -shake and strain into champagne glass
    can garnish with melon slice
