Summer is now in full swing and that means it’s time for fruity drinks and tipples in the sun! We’ve whipped up a delicious gin and Kombucha cocktail for you to try at home. Using a blend of our Raspberry & Elderflower Kombucha and dry gin, this sumptuous treat will be sure to tickle your taste buds with a sweet and tangy twist. Let’s get stuck in…
- 50ml gin (we used Old Tom recipe gin, but any dry gin will do)
- 25ml lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 egg white, or 25ml of aquafaba to make it vegan friendly
- 25ml single cream, or 25ml oat cream to make it vegan friendly
- 15ml simple syrup (no extra flavour)
- 3 fresh raspberries
- Ice (amount is dependent on how many you’re making and the size of your shaker)
- 1 bottle of Equinox’s Raspberry & Elderflower Kombucha, fresh out the fridge
- Cocktail shaker
- Mini strainer (a normal sieve will do in a pinch, but pour carefully!)
- Muddler (a wooden spoon or end of a thin rolling pin will do in a pinch)
- Glass (a tall, thin one is best, similar to the one pictured, but any glass will do)
- Metal teaspoon/latte spoon
- Add the raspberries, lemon juice and syrup to a shaker and ‘muddle’ together, which mashes up the raspberries and mixes them with the juice and syrup.
- Once the ingredients are muddled together, add the remaining ingredients and dry shake (shaking without ice). Shake until the lemon, sugar, and egg (or aquafaba) begins to thicken and emulsify into a foam.
- Once the foam has started to form, top the shaker off with ice and shake for a further 30 seconds.
- Strain the cocktail into your glass, and allow it to settle for a couple of minutes, or until the foam begins to firm up and ‘wiggles’ slightly when gently shaken.
- Using the back of a spoon, gently pour Kombucha onto the top of the foam (the spoon is vital, as otherwise the liquid will displace the foam when poured) until the foam is poking slightly out of the glass, to add a fizz and that classic Kombucha tang at the end.
- Serve and enjoy this moreish Kombucha gin cocktail!
