Non alcoholic: Citrus & Herb Kombucha (served warm like hot cider!)

Ingredients (4 portions)

500 ml orange juice

250 ml Ginger kombucha

100 ml lemon juice

5 cm ginger root (thinly sliced)

6 sprigs rosemary

4 sprigs thyme

4 tbsp honey

1 blood orange or pink grapefruit

1 mandarin

handful (pink) peppercorns


1. Put the orange juice, lemon juice and kombucha with 2 sprigs of rosemary, half the ginger, thyme and honey in a saucepan and heat slowly until warm. Do not let it boil.

2. Slice the grapefruit and mandarin. Divide with the remaining ginger between the glasses.

3. Pour the warm orange-kombucha mixture on top.

4. Insert a sprig of rosemary and top with some crushed peppercorns.

Tip: You can also replace the green herbs with some anise stars and cinnamon sticks. This in turn is delicious with orange blossom honey!
