Even when hosting a party or just relaxing at night, it is possible to enjoy a nice cocktail while still supporting systems that help balance hormones. This is a delicious liver and gut supporting beverage that is easy to make.
3-4 cups kombucha (either homemade or store-bought)
1 cup fresh orange juice (about 3-4 oranges)
1 cup frozen cherries* (about 16-20 cherries) (raspberries or strawberries can also be used)
1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled (optional)
1/8 tsp nutmeg (optional)2 tsp maple syrup (optional) (raw honey, sucanat, coconut sweetener or organic sugar are also options)
Sparkling or regular white wine (optional)Dried cranberries, pomegranate seeds and orange wedges for garnish
Juice the oranges and place in a blending machine such as a Vitamix, Ninja, Nutribullet, blender or food processor (it may leak in the processor). Add the cherries, ginger, nutmeg and maple syrup. Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl or pitcher. Add the kombucha and stir. Chill. Pour into wine glasses. Add a few dried cranberries or pomegranate seeds (or both) and an orange wedge to each glass. Just before serving add some sparkling wine to each glass. Another option is to make extra kombucha cocktail and use it to make some ice cubes and add one to each glass.
