Recipe Summary

5 mins
5 mins

A healthy gut supports a lot more than just optimal digestion; it also helps promote stable moods and a strong immune system. One of the best ways to support gut health is to add more probiotic-rich foods into your diet, including kombucha, a lightly effervescent, fermented tea. Drink kombucha on its own, or use it as one component in a drink. Here it gets flavored with zesty lime, punchy ginger, and tart pomegranate juice for a stellar non-alcoholic cocktail or a lively afternoon pick-me-up. 


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Remove a 3-by-1-inch zest strip from lime and cut lime in half. Place 1 half in a large, sturdy mug or cocktail shaker; reserve remaining half for another use. Add ginger to mug. Using bottom of a wooden spoon, muddle lime and ginger, pounding on lime to extract juice.

  • Pour mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a glass, pressing solids in strainer to extract as much juice as possible. Fill glass halfway with ice.

  • Add kombucha and pomegranate juice to glass; stir to combine. Top with soda and garnish with lime zest strip.
