The Blue Tchaga: a Kombucha Mocktail

Summer, with its hot and humid days, is finally back! Cause we all want to fully appreciate these days, here's the Blue Tchaga, an alcohol free cocktail (aka a mocktail!) created in collaboration with Tchaga Kombucha, a Quebec based kombucha brand*.

For the kombucha lover and alcohol free girl that I am, this drink was simply made for me and my taste! While the mint and the cucumber make it super refreshing, the litchi juice and the blueberries make it just enough sweet and fruity. The ginger kombucha gives it a nice kick and some fizziness. Being alcohol free, this mocktail will be perfect for every member of the family, kids and pregnant women included!

Oh! and the cool thing about this drink is that, once the first local cucumbers and blueberries will hit the markets and the groceries, it will be possible to make this mocktail almost 100% locally (with the only exception of the litchi juice).
