Smoky Grapefruit Kombucha Cocktail

by | May 31, 2020 | Recipes

I drink alcohol. That may suprise you. I am not against alcohol and think it can still be a part of a healthy lifestyle, if done in moderation and not to try to escape something. 

There is no doubt – alcohol brings people together and is something that is enjoyed by many. 

In fact, when I studied Blue Zones during my health coaching training, most of the areas that lived the longest and were the healthiest, drink alcohol moderately and regularly.

My drink of choice is typically a glass of Dry Farm red wine, but since the weather has gotten nice out my husband and I have been playing around with a new tequila cocktail inspired by one someone shared with me from Real Simple. 

I don’t like sweet drinks, so keep that in mind but also we have made this a few different ways so don’t stress if you don’t have all the ingredients. Give it a try and let me know your favorite variation.
