Beverages have a special way of defining parts of your day that can be essential to your routine. A warm cup of coffee in the morning is a daily ritual to get your day started, just like how a steamy cup of tea is great for a midday pickup. But where does kombucha fit in?
If you don’t know, kombucha is a delicious fermented drink made from tea. How can you make kombucha even better? Make it a lil' boozy and turn the flavor up a notch.
Kombucha, hard or otherwise, has certain benefits that stem from its natural probiotic bacteria. Plus, it's refreshing and satisfying without the sugar and carb overload that comes along with a standard soda or mixed drink.
So, when’s the best time to drink a hard kombucha?
In the Morning
Hard kombucha in the morning? Sure, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. We’re kidding, of course—that is, unless we’re talking brunch.
The next time you’re hosting a DIY brunch, consider your go-to a crisp, clean, refreshing can of Flying Embers hard kombucha. Swap out the classic mimosa for a Midknight Mimosa, packed with juicy notes from Valencia orange and sweet guava, or take brunch in a new direction with Grapefruit Tangie, a bright, citrusy concoction that was just made for a lazy morning.
Long gone are the days of sugary mimosas and Bloody Marys (anyone else weirded out by the bacon?)
Our hard kombuchas are food-friendly, cocktail-inspired fermentations that pair well with just about anything.
If there's one thing we know and love (more than cocktail hour) it's a great meal, so that means we take our food and beverage pairings very seriously. Wild Berry is a naturally sweet blend of raspberry, elderberry, and goji berry. Upgrade that midday veggie salad or savory sammie by complementing it with this crisp and effervescent fizz. It'll turn your meal into a full-fledged flavor ~experience~.
If BBQ is more your style, our Ginger kombucha will balance out those heavy sauces, and provide a little kick of its own. No matter what's on the menu, we guarantee it's can-in-hand friendly.
Kombucha at Night
This isn't your grandfather’s nightcap. These adaptogenic, botanical brews are thirst-quenching and gloriously refreshing. Depending on what's on your nighttime agenda, our low-ABV and high-ABV offerings have you covered from dinner party to night out on the town.
At the end of the day, we have tea to thank for our hard kombucha, so there is a bit of caffeine in that cocktail glass of yours. However, don't fret, because every can only has 18mg—or about one-third the amount of caffeine in a regular cup of tea.
Our nighttime go-to is our citrusy Grapefruit Thyme, which combines slightly tart grapefruit with a hint of aromatic thyme. At 4.5% ABV and 85 calories, it's delightfully fizzy and undeniably satisfying.
