Here’s a fizzy drink to jump start your New Year’s on a slightly healthier note. These Hibiscus Kombucha Blush Cocktails are made from 3 simple ingredients and take just minutes to make. They’re perfect for the short-on-time host or hostess getting ready to celebrate the ball drop tonight. Ready or not, 2015 is here, so there’s no time to waste!What I love about this Hibiscus Kombucha Blush is that it’s effervescent, fresh, and not too sweet. The concoction gets its soft, rosy hue from fermented hibiscus tea and strawberry purée. Both can be found in the fridge section of your health food store or even in a well-stocked ordinary grocery store.
If you want to transform this cocktail into a mocktail, feel free to swap out the prosecco with sparkling apple cider. Either way, you’ll experience a tart pop of fizz balanced by fruity sweetness.Get a head start on your January detox regimen with a beautifully pink Hibiscus Kombucha Blush. The invigorating combination of probiotics, vitamins, and a touch of bubbly will keep you going well into the night. And if you are holding off on detoxing, enjoy these light cocktails with New Year’s Day brunch, along with a few flakey Matcha Croissants. Cheers! Looking forward to seeing you in 2015!!
