Traditionally, Moscow Mules are served in copper mugs but with the strawberry addition I thought they were much better suited in a clear glass.

Strawberry Infused Ginger Kombucha Moscow Mules gluten-free, vegan-option // yields 4-6 drinks

  • 18 medium strawberries, washed + hulled
  • 2-4 tablespoons honey, or agave or coconut nectar
  • 4-5 juicy limes
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger, optional
  • 2, 16oz ginger kombucha drinks
  • 6 – 9oz vodka
  • ice

Place strawberries in a blender with 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, and ginger [if using]. Blend until fully pureed and taste for sweetness. Add more honey or ginger if desired. Pour into a sealable container. Strain seeds through a fine mesh strainer if desired. Strawberry puree can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for about 3 days.

Pour about 1.5oz vodka into a glass, along with 5-6oz kombucha, 1/2 juiced lime [strained], and about 3 tablespoons of strawberry puree. Stir until the puree is fully combined [looks a bit murky at first], add a few ice cubes, and give another stir.

Garnish with a few strawberry slices, lime, and/or a thing slice of fresh ginger. Serve immediately with a small spoon or straw for stirring.

---

notes: Be sure the vodka you are using is gluten-free + vegan if needed. If you can’t find ginger kombucha I would aim to find a strawberry or other berry flavor kombucha and add a bit more [maybe double] freshly grated ginger to the strawberry puree. Moscow Mules are known for their gingery-ness, so you want to be sure that comes through. These drinks are on the pulpy side if you don’t strain the strawberries + limes. This is not meant to be a super sweet drink. I used 2T honey in the puree.

drink options:

Strawberry Infused Moscow Mules [with ginger beer]

  • Puree your strawberries without the addition of honey since ginger beer is quite sweet. Follow the rest of the directions as stated.

Strawberry Infused Ginger Kombucha Mocktail

  • Simply leave out the booze!

Cheers!

p.s. This is my favorite ginger beer, if you’re into the traditional style Mules or want to use ginger beer instead of kombucha. [fyi: not vegan –> uses honey]

I definitely don't need a reason to drink a cocktail. Cheers!

The perfect spring/summer beverage! The fabulous thing about this drink, is that you could switch up the berries as the season of strawberries changes into raspberries or blackberries. Thanks for sharing!

omg! i think you just combined all of my favorite things together. that is my favorite kombucha and i looove a good moscow mule. fantastic recipe! cheers.

I love the idea of using kombucha in a moscow mule - and thanks for the ginger beer recommendation because I'm a total dunce with all things like that - I definitely prefer for someone to RECOMMEND what ginger beer/alcohol/whatever they use rather than just saying to use "ginger beer". This looks fantastically delicious and I can't wait to make it! Kombucha for me and ginger beer for the fiance!

I've never heard of Moscow Mules, but now I can see that I've really been missing out. What would you recommend in place of vodka for non-alcoholic friends?
April 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTess Bonn
@Izy - Alwayyyys appropriate. Enjoy, lovely!

@Dixya - I definitely need to start brewing at home!

@Hillary - Cheers, indeed!

@Natalie - I completely understand. :) Hope you both enjoy them!

@Tess - Below the recipe you'll see "drink options" with a non-alcoholic "mock-tail" version for this drink. Basically, you just leave out the booze!

Ginger kombucha is the only flavor I'll drink. I add cayenne. Which is as close to vodka as I get ;) Thanks for the inspiration!
April 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSarah
So freaking pretty. Love the shadows in these photographs!!
All of this is my favorite ever. Favorite brand/flavor of kombucha, favorite ginger beer, favorite cocktail...Must make ASAP!

I don't think I've ever run run out of the house so quickly to get ingredients for a recipe! Within one hour of viewing this beauty, I had one in my hands :)

Sounds so good! I really need to get on the kombucha cocktail wagon.
April 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKate
I LOVE that Kombucha. I've just recently gotten into it and can't stock my fridge enough! Sounds like a great idea for a cocktail. ;)

Tried this recipe this weekend and it was so great. Didn't have vodka so I used some white wine. Loved it! And, I love the ginger kombucha (I went to the store to get more!) Thanks for sharing the recipe.

WOW Beautiful! I work at Kombucha Brooklyn, and help host Kombucha incorporated dinners / drinks events here. Happy to see someone is having fun, listing the right reasons to do anything, and drinking kombucha! Would love to post this, maybe send some of our great stuff to you (maybe some of our specialty tea kombucha!) if you wanted to mix it up... try a bit of eucalyptus simple syrup with some morrocan mint in your next one - was a little something I did last summer at our markets and was a great hit.

If anyone else is in the NYC area and wants to take a class, we host a variety of classes as well as Kombucha Happy Hours here at our Brooklyn Learning Center. We love to brew, and mix it up like this as well.

Cheers!

@Tlobner - Glad to know it works well with wine! You are most welcome! Thanks for the feedback. :)

@Will - That sounds like quite the fun gig! Thank you so much for the offer. I've been looking into brewing kombucha at home and will shoot you an email soon. Thanks!

@ATasteofMadness - Yes, you do!
