Easy Raspberry Kombucha Recipe

Raspberry kombucha is a widely popular flavor with refreshing flavors of lemon, ginger, and the fruitiness of raspberries.

Raspberries give the kombucha a ruby red color that brightens up your cocktails, and teas, perfect for festivities. This is one of my favorite kombucha flavors and it looks absolutely stunning on the serving table – glasses full of bright red kombucha with fresh green lime, and ice.

I like to serve the kombucha in fancy crystal glasses with sugar, and peppermint rims. Add a few raspberries in the glass to make it more fruity. I freeze raspberries, and toss them in sugar before adding them to the skewers to decorate the glass.

It not only looks amazing, but tastes like heaven as well. Lemon and ginger give the kombucha a zesty flavor, while honey brings sweetness to the drink.


What is Raspberry Kombucha Made of?

Raspberry kombucha is zesty and flavorful. It is not only great to taste, but also visually pleasing, making it a permanent drink in my house during the holiday season.

  • Kombucha: The main ingredient is homemade kombucha after the first fermentation.
  • Raspberries: You can either use fresh raspberries or frozen ones, whatever is available in your region easily. You can also add other berries for a more fruity flavor like strawberries, or blackberries. I have also added cherries before, and it compliments the flavor of raspberries.
  • Lemon juice: Lemon gives the kombucha a zesty punch adding freshness to the liquid. You can use bottled lemon juice, but I prefer fresh lemon juice. You can even add lemon zest for a more lemony flavor.
  • Ginger: Grated fresh ginger adds the fizz factor to the kombucha.
  • Honey: Raspberries provide the essential sweetness to the kombucha, but a splash of honey gives enough sugar for bacteria, which helps in carbonation, while offsetting the sourness of lemon.
