Kombucha Lemon Berry Sangria Recipe

Makes 6-8 Servings

1 bottle dry white wine
3 bottles of raw organic kombucha (equivalent to 1 liter)
2 cups of fresh grapefruit juice
1 cup strawberries, cut up small
1 cup raspberries
½ cup blackberries, sliced in half if too large
½ lemon, sliced razor thin
2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

1. Combine all ingredients, except lemon slices, into a large pitcher or bowl.
2. Chill for 2 to 24 hours.
3. Toss in lemon slices and serve.

Why is this considered healthy?
· Kombucha is a fermented drink that is naturally effervescent. Some of its claims to fame are: detoxification, aiding digestion and boosting the immune system.
· The berries contain antioxidants and the alcohol has both antioxidants and pro-oxidants, so they potentially balance out.

White wine has two strong antioxidants of its own, tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol, also found in olive oil, that aren’t present in red wine.
