Kombucha Mixology! It’s Actually A Thing

Kombucha has got to be one of the most versatile drinks ever. Aside from helping colonize our gut bacteria, it’s used for so many other purposes - salad dressing, face toner, all-purpose spray – to name just a few. And now as this fizzy, boochy brew is becoming more mainstream, food service establishments are deciding to add a bit of spirit kick to this already delicious drink. Restaurants all over the world, including right here in beautiful Kelowna are complimenting kombucha with booze.

Boozy booch?
