As 2020 finally draws to a close and people begin to turn their attention to the promise of a new year, many are formulating resolutions aimed at improving everything from lifestyle and relationships to exercise, diet and overall health.
For those not ready to commit fully to the no-alcohol ‘Dryuary’ movement but who are drawn to the idea of incorporating more interesting, lower-calorie cocktail options into their drinks repertoire, Brockmans Gin, in partnership with LA-based Health-Ade Kombucha, is introducing a series of interestingly tasty cocktails that combine the gin’s exceptional mix of berry notes and botanicals with the wildly popular Kombucha cocktail mixer alternative.
Kombucha is a fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly consumed for its perceived health benefits. While studies are limited, kombucha proponents believe kombucha tea offers probiotic benefits that promote a healthier immune system. “With this in mind and guided by a keen sense of curiosity, the Brockmans team joined forces with Health-Ade® Kombucha to conduct exploratory cocktail development,” said Matthew Argenti, Brand Director USA, Brockmans Gin. “We were thrilled to discover that Kombucha combined with Brockmans Gin creates deliciously complex and lower-calorie cocktails with an unexpected twist. They offer the perfect cocktail alternative to help kick off the new year on track.” Brockmans favorites include:
