Watermelon Kombucha Sangria
Have I ever told you guys how awesome you are? Thank you times a million for your support after my big announcement to leave my job. It really does mean a lot to me, and I am so grateful to be a part of our wonderful blogging niche. I think we need to celebrate! Drinks on me? Or at least a recipe for a drink on me.

Berry Kombucha Sangria

It’s been too long since I posted a cocktail. Aaron and I had a fun ritual last summer of instituting a happy hour of sorts. One week it was watermelon mojitos, another is was grapefruit ginger spritzers. I’m a little late in re-instituting cocktail hour this summer, but better late than never, right?

Summer Sangria
I’ve been wanting to use kombucha in a drink for a while, and pairing it with wine seemed like a good way to go. There was one snafu: the fruit flies got to it first! I knew it was only a matter of time, but I was still horrified to find them enjoying my next batch when I uncovered the jar. So, so gross! I will spare you the details.

Sparkling Sangria
I did what I had to and tossed everything, sanitized the hell out of my jar, purchased a new scoby, and started from scratch (making sure the fabric cover was tightly in place). Fortunately, the actual sangria recipe came together seamlessly. It’s hard to go wrong with watermelon, wine, and berries, after all.

Watermelon & Lime
The kombucha adds a slight sweetness and natural carbonation, and I took that a step farther, pouring in a generous amount of sparkling water for some added pizzazz.

Kombucha Sangria
This sangria is light and refreshing, and very easy to drink, which is just the way I like it. Happy hour is back!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups watermelon cubes, cold
  • 750 ml bottle of your favorite vegan, fruity red wine, chilled (white wine would be fun, too!)
  • 3 cups seltzer water, chilled
  • 2 cups kombucha
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen berries (I used a mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries)
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • sweetener to taste (optional)

Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan Servings: 6-8

Prep Time: 10 mins

Another way to fuel your summer watermelon addiction! This sangria is light, extra fruity, and goes down very, very easy. The sparkling water and kombucha add some fun fizziness.

Instructions

  • Add the berries and all but a handful of the watermelon cubes and lime slices to a large pitcher (you'll use those as garnish).
  • Add the red wine, seltzer water, and kombucha, and stir to mix. Muddle some of the fruit if you like.
  • Taste and stir in sweetener (optional). I used approximately 1/2 of a dropper full of liquid orange flavored stevia. Agave nectar would also work well.
  • Pour the sangria into ice-filled glasses and garnish with a slice of lime and a cube of watermelon.

    Those ruby red pictures are just mouth-wateringly divine, Amanda! And, what a great idea for a kombucha cocktail. Tart and fresh and lush all in one.

    So glad to have helped nudge you back to cocktail hour. Adds such a nice genteelness to the day, doesn’t it? We’ll have to join forces sometime ;). Cheers to you and Aaron!

    XOXO,
    J.
