Orange Cranberry Kombucha Recipe!
This kombucha combines two of my favorite flavors!
The sweetness of the orange goes so well with the tartness of the cranberry!
Kombucha, of course, is amazing on its own.
But when you add the cranberry orange flavor to this fizzy beverage it is really, really good!
Use this kombucha during the holidays, or year around! It fits in during any season:)
Before you begin!
First, if you are new to making your own Kombucha (or even if you are not new;) be sure to check out Why You Should Use The Kombucha Continuous Brew System.
Continuous Brew Kombucha
The Continuous Brew System is the best and easiest way to make Kombucha.
Not only will it save you lots of time, but it will keep you in steady supply of Kombucha that is actually more nutritious!
If you haven’t tried it you really should! It will change your life!
Also, be sure to check out The Best Tasting Kombucha Tea Blend! This tea blend makes an amazingly smooth tasting kombucha full of amazing health benefits!
But anyways, getting back to our yummy flavor, we aren’t going to talk about how to make kombucha today.
Instead we are focusing on how to flavor our Kombucha once it’s made!
Ok, first let’s go over our ingredients and supplies.
If you are using the Continuous Brew System this will be really easy! With it’s easy fill spout, filling bottles is a dream!
I usually use bottles that I have saved from store bought Kombucha, or you can purchase these glass bottles that are the same size.
Also, I want to start experimenting with these swing top glass bottles to see if they will make a more fizzy second ferment.
I will keep you posted with the results!
2. Cranberry Juice
I use organic pure cranberry juice, not a cranberry juice cocktail (although that would probably be yummy too:). Pure cranberry juice is more tart than a blended juice.
3. Orange Juice
You can juice your own or buy store bought organic orange juice.
How To Flavor Kombucha
Ok, now that you’ve gathered your ingredients, let’s get started!
1. First add 1 ounce of cranberry juice to your bottles.
This is a matter of preference so feel free to experiment with the amount to find the flavor that you enjoy most!
2. Next add about 2 to 3 ounces of orange juice to your bottles.
This is also according to taste. I don’t usually measure it exactly, I just kind of eyeball it.
The above picture shows how much of both juices combined that I add to my bottles.
3. The last ingredient that you need to add is your prepared Kombucha!
Fill it all the way to the top.
4. And finally, you are going to screw on the lids and put your bottles in a dark cabinet.
You want to allow your Kombucha to complete it’s second ferment.
This will take anywhere from one to three days. You need to leave it for at least a full 24 hours to give the Kombucha time to eat a portion of the natural sugars in the flavorings.
The longer you leave it the more fizzy it will be.
But do not leave it longer than the three days. Leaving it longer than the three days will increase the alcohol content of your Kombucha, making it unsafe for children.
And that’s it! How easy is it to make Cranberry Orange Kombucha?!
