Raspberry Elderflower Kombutcha Mocktail

If you are looking for something fresh, crispy tasting I cannot recommend this recipe enough. The flavours of the berries and lightly sweetened elderflower are wonderful. A healthier and sustainable alternative to any shop bought fizzy drinks

Raspberry Elderflower Kombucha Mocktail

Serves 4

  • 1 ltr BRITA filtered water
  • 60g white sugar
  • 1 raspberry tea bag
  • 350ml pre-made kombucha
  • 1 SCOBY (you can buy this online – it protects the ferment-ing drink and helps maintain the correct environment needed for kombucha making)
  • 2/3 cup fresh raspberries, halved plus more to garnish
  • 100ml elderflower cordial

To make the mocktail recipe, I recommend refrigerated pre-made kombucha.

Fill the kettle with one cup of the BRITA filtered water and boil the water.

Place the teabag in a mug and pour over the just boiled water. Leave the tea to steep and cool for 25 minutes.

Step One – The First Fermentation

Once the tea is cooled a little, add it to a large glass, sealable jug with the sugar and stir to combine.

Remove the teabag using a wooden spoon and add the SCOBY and the premade kombucha. Following this, leave the lid of the bottle open and cover with a tea towel. You should leave this at a room temperature of around 20 degrees and out of direct sunlight for about 7 – 10 days to ferment.

Once your kombucha is brewed, remove and set aside.

This is the first fermentation done.

Step Two – Adding The Flavours

For the second fermentation you can amp up the flavour a bit.

Here is where you can experiment with addi-tional flavours. The best way to do this is adding a ginger tea bag, or perhaps lemongrass.

After you add the flavours, seal the jar up and leave it to steep for a few more days. Just make sure you burp the kombucha to relieve the gas bubbles a bit everyday for the second fermentation.

Divide the raspberries equally between 4 glasses, then add a dash of elderflower cor-dial and top each glass up with the brewed kombucha.
