TEQUILA TOO HARSH? TRY RECIPE NO#2…



2)The Kombucha Cosmopolitan    

Makes 1-3 servings
90 ml citrus vodka
60ml orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau or Triple Sec
60 ml plain or Berry Kombucha
60 ml pure cranberry juice
15ml fresh lime juice, more to taste
2 lime wheels or wedges, for garnish
Fill two martini glasses with crushed ice and set aside to chill.
In a cocktail shaker filled with large pieces of ice (we’re using large ice rather than crushed due to the making two drinks at once, as we don’t want the large amount of liquid to melt the ice too quickly), pour in all the cocktail ingredients. Shake, then empty the martini glasses of their ice and strain the cocktail evenly between the two glasses.
Garnish with lime wedges or lime wheels and serve immediately.
