Kombucha Lemonade

A deliciously tart, thirst-quenching, and cleansing drink for any time of the year

If you are the guardian of a superior SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) and make your own kombucha, good on ya! If not, no worries, the shops are full of really great small-batch and commercial varieties, many with fabulous fruity and floral flavours masking the somewhat vinegary undertone of this healthy tonic. Adding your own freshly squeezed lemon juice and maple syrup makes it deliciously tart, thirst quenching, and cleansing.  


3 cups chilled kombucha
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp maple syrup, or more to taste—this is a tart drink
Ice cubes 
Lemon slices for garnishing


Start with chilled ingredients and jars for the coldest drink possible. In jug or large jar, combine kombucha, lemon juice and maple syrup; chill. To take on the go, transfer to Mason jars, add a few ice cubes and a lemon slice, cap it tightly and wrap in a tea towel for extra insulation.
