Berry Kombucha Sangria

Yes! Another tasty beverage with a little kick of kombucha.

And let’s be real. When I say “sangria” what I really mean is fruit salad with wine poured over top.

SO MUCH FRUIT.

Way more than any normal person would add to sangria. But, I find the wine-soaked fruit to be my favorite component which is why I added a crap ton of it. I just adore the juiciness of the orange slices, how the apple holds its crispy texture, and how the berries swell with wine and burst in your mouth.

From now until berries lose their taste.

And then we can switch to stone fruits.

I lucked out this week and had a sweet delivery of the kombucha you see below! The kind folks at Clearly Kombucha sent over a few flavors for me to try out and it was absolute perfect timing for my sangria recipe. I loved the light floral notes in this and thought it was the perfect match with this recipe.

Not sponsored. Just fun.

Berry Kombucha Sangria gluten-free, vegan // yields 2-4 servings

  • 1, 750 mL bottle Pinot Grigio, vegan if needed
  • 1 large orange
  • 1 medium green apple, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 bottle berry flavored kombucha

Pour wine into a large pitcher. Slice your orange in half around the center [not end to end]. Squeeze one half to get about 1/3 cup fresh orange juice and strain the pulp. Pour into the pitcher with the wine. Gently stir.

Slice 1/4-inch thick rounds of the remaining orange half and cut each round into quarters with the rind attached [refer to photo 1]. Slice strawberries in half [if using]. Add the orange segments, apple, and berries to the wine and give a few gentle stirs.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours but best overnight. Pour into glasses and serve with a few splashes [2-3 tablespoons] of kombucha in each glass. Can be made 1 day ahead. Add ice if desired when serving.

optional:

  • Use any combination of berries you choose. I used an equal mix of blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries.
  • For a little more kick add 1/4 cup brandy to the mix.
  • Add juice from 1 lime for a sour bite.
  • Try Riesling instead of Pinot Grigio for more sweetness.
  • I used a very sweet Cara Cara orange but feel free to use any type of orange you like. If your oranges are smaller in size you may need two.

Such a simple yet intriguing concept and the photos are stunning- love the wine pouring ones, I still struggle to photograph glass with that much clarity! I brew my own kombucha, it's not fruity but i'm wondering if i can use it in a similar way. I guess there's only one way to find out. Bring on summer BBQ's. ;-)

I am SO in the same boat as you are, love the boozy fruit at the end! : )
@Jo - I know what you mean about glass! I haven't used this pitcher much and the glasses I used were new which is most likely why they were so clear. :) My wine glasses look cloudy and dirty in photos.

@Katie - YAY! Enjoy!

i love kombucha in boozy drinks. a local bar does a draft ginger kombucha mixed w bourbon and it's a standard for us now. this post is so inspiring! i'm absolutely making this. i love how easy it is, and perfectly springy. i've been needing something to brighten up my dinners and weekends what with being between winter and spring harvest seasons (we've been eating a lot of asparagus, spinach, and what's left of our stored sweet potatoes and carrots...). <3
