Ginger and Lemon Kombucha recipe

by Hannah Singleton

This Ginger and Lemon Kombucha mocktail is bursting with flavour - you'd never suspect just how quick and easy it is to make!

If you’re feeling a bit cheeky you can even add a shot of vodka or gin for a sure-fire party pleaser. Personally, we like vodka with ginger flavoured kombucha as it has a more subtle flavour which allows the tangy, tartness of the kombucha to really shine.

The addition of freshly squeezed lemon juice and fresh ginger in this recipe does add something special here. But if you’re short on time, we think you’ll find the Nexba Apple Pear & Ginger Kombucha is delicious on its own.

In you a pinch, you can simply pour Nexba Kombucha over ice, add a garnish and - ta da! - you've got a restaurant-quality drink. We won’t tell your guests!

Why drink kombucha?

Kombucha is a refreshing and powerful living health drink.

Made by fermenting tea and sugar with live cultures (aka a SCOBY - Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeasts). 

The fermentation process digests the sugar to produce organic acids, vitamins (in particular Vitamin B and Vitamin C), minerals, amino acids and enzymes - turning the bowl of sweet tea into a biochemical powerhouse.

Plus, perhaps best of all, it also produces a bunch of happy gut buddies in the form of super-powerful probiotic microorganisms.

What makes Nexba Kombucha different?

Bottled kombuchas from the supermarket (except Nexba’s!) often take a hit on the probiotic front. This is because the manufacturing process can kill off the living probiotic microorganisms, leaving no good gut buddies to arrive at your tummy party. 

At Nexba we’ve worked our butts off to make sure the probiotics stay alive. Our smart, robust probiotics are encased in a protective shell which means they survive the manufacturing, bottling and transportation process and STILL make it all the way from your mouth to your gut before the shell breaks free and the party starts!

Oh and did we mention, you don’t need to keep our kombucha in the fridge either?

At Nexba, we ferment our Kombucha for 40 days (longer than other kombuchas on the market). The extended fermentation allows even more time for all the sugar to be eaten, leaving our Kombucha completely free from sugar, caffeine and alcohol. 

Just when you thought this cocktail couldn’t get any better for you, let’s quickly talk about the health benefits of ginger root…

Ginger is a familiar and well-known spice, particularly popular in the cooler months because of its warming properties. It has a number of medicinal compounds and has been used medicinally for centuries. Some of these uses include…

  • Assisting with digestive complaints such as nausea
  • Relief of inflammatory conditions
  • Improving circulation and cardiovascular health
  • Alleviating asthma symptoms

We’re sold on ginger kombucha benefits! And this recipe is yummier than your average soft drink plus it comes with all the added nutritional benefits. What's not to like?
