Frozen Kombucha Margaritas

A sunny day begs for celebration in the form of a frozen drink. We created this version of the classic margarita that uses kombucha instead of a mix. This means no sugar, plus the health benefits of the fermented beverage. Don your sombrero and give it try—with alcohol or virgin; we’ve included both.

Frozen Kombucha Margarita


1 bottle of Gingeraid kombucha. (We used this one.) (You could use an original-flavored kombucha and add ½ teaspoon of fresh ginger.)
¼ cup of lime juice from 6 fresh limes (You can also use a premade organic lime juice.)
24 ice cubes from a regular-sized ice-cube tray.
1 teaspoon of maple syrup or agave nectar
Two limes cut into slices to garnish

Optional: Sea salt for the rim of the glass
For alcoholic version: ¼ cup of organic tequila to taste. (We used 4Copas tequila.)
For mocktail version: ¼ cup of coconut water
