We talked about the “Sober Evolution” in an earlier post, and we shared some pretty fabulous mocktail recipes. Now it’s time to switch it up and talk about the new beverage trend that’s sweeping the Nation … kombucha!

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic black or green tea beverage originating in Asia thousands of years ago. And it’s packed full of healthy goodness. When made properly, kombucha is a potential source of probiotics and antioxidants.

But enough about the science of kombucha, let’s talk about the savory side of this versatile beverage.

Today we’re sharing five refreshing new ways to give your kombucha drinks an added burst of flavour with our new Puremade syrups.
