RECIPE: Gut-Friendly Kombucha Tequila Cocktails by Happy Tummy Co

Did you know tequila is the best liquor for gut health? If you’re serving up drinks for NYE but want to keep it (relatively) healthy, opt for this Kombucha Tequila cocktail by Karen from Happy Tummy Co instead of the usual, and bask in the day-after smugness…

Ingredients for one drink:

  • A double shot of Tequila Añejo or Tequila Reposado (make sure it says 100% Agave on the label)
  • 1-2 shots kombucha (available at many organic grocers and Ocado.com)
  • Half a red chilli
  • Orange or grapefruit peel
  • 3-4 dashes Chocolate Chili Bitters
  • Squeeze of lime (optional)
  • Tonic water to finish (optional)
  • Large cube of ice
  • Frozen glass (put your glass into the freezer a few minutes before mixing this up!)

Method:
Place your large cube of ice into the freezing glass followed by the orange peel and chilli. Squeeze some lime juice in now if using.
Pour in your tequila and kombucha followed by a few dashes of bitters.
Top with a little tonic water if the taste is too strong for you.
Stir slowly and enjoy!
