Colorful Kombucha Moscato Sangria makes the perfect healthy-ish summer cocktail. Perfectly boozy and sweetened with fruit and gut-friendly kombucha.

Colorful Kombucha Moscato Sangria

When I think about summer cocktails, I immediately think about sangria. It reminds me of summer dinner parties my parents hosted with our family friends when I was growing up. Sangria is fruity and fresh. It just feels so bright and fun and happy!

Fun fact: for my 21st birthday, I made kombucha sangria, and my friends thought I was trying to kill them with kombucha. Now, I have some kombucha-loving friends, and I know that kombucha sangria is not only fun but also delicious.

So here we are: kombucha sangria.

Colorful Kombucha Moscato Sangria

What is kombucha sangria?

Let's tart with what sangria is. Sangria is a punch of sorts, usually made with red wine and fruit. The fruit soaks up the alcohol, creating a lower-alcohol drink (though if you eat the fruit too you get all that booziness back!).

Often you will see recipes with fruit juice added to the wine. This is fine, but (in my opinion) adding kombucha is more fun. Since kombucha is fizzy, you get a lovely carbonation in your sangria. Plus, you get the added benefits of probiotics and a little bit of gut health with your booze.

Recipe Features

So besides the fact that this sangria has kombucha, what else makes it so fun?

Well.. if you want, you can make it color changing!

The secret is butterfly pea powder. It's a purplish powder that will take this sangria from a bright red to a gorgeous purple pink. And it will add a touch of super food to your already incredible drink.

I don't know about you, but I'm excited. Let's make it!!

Colorful Kombucha Moscato Sangria

Ingredients

  • Ginger Kombucha: Ginger kombucha has a neutral taste and is the perfect light color to help you create a beautiful color change with the pea powder.
  • Pink Moscato: Traditional sangria uses a red sangria wine, but Moscato is super sweet and tasty, perfect for a fruity sangria.
  • Brandy: A kick of brandy is a fun sangria addition. If you don't have brandy or don't like it, no worries, brandy is optional and the sangria will still be delicious without it.
  • Fruit: I used a mix of fresh and frozen. Frozen berries make the perfect ice, and fresh citrus fruits add a perfect zing.
  • Butterfly Pea Powder: You can't taste it, but you can see the colors change when you add it. Perfectly magical!
  • Mint: for garnish.

How to make Colorful Kombucha Moscato Sangria

Step 1. Slice the oranges, limes, and kumquats into rounds. Place into a large pitcher or bowl along with the frozen berries.

Step 2. Pour in the Moscato and brandy (if using). Let the mixture sit for an hour to allow the flavors to meld.

Step 3. When ready to serve, pour the kombucha into a jar. Add 2 teaspoons of butterfly pea powder and watch the colors change!

Step 4. Add all the kombucha to the wine mixture OR choose your own level of alcohol and mix the kombucha and wine by the glass. Garnish with extra orange slices and mint. Enjoy!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
