Here’s a fizzy drink to jump start your New Year’s on a slightly healthier note. These Hibiscus Kombucha Blush Cocktails are made from 3 simple ingredients and take just minutes to make. They’re perfect for the short-on-time host or hostess getting ready to celebrate the ball drop tonight. Ready or not, 2015 is here, so there’s no time to waste!What I love about this Hibiscus Kombucha Blush is that it’s effervescent, fresh, and not too sweet. The concoction gets its soft, rosy hue from fermented hibiscus tea and strawberry purée. Both can be found in the fridge section of your health food store or even in a well-stocked ordinary grocery store.
If you want to transform this cocktail into a mocktail, feel free to swap out the prosecco with sparkling apple cider. Either way, you’ll experience a tart pop of fizz balanced by fruity sweetness.Get a head start on your January detox regimen with a beautifully pink Hibiscus Kombucha Blush. The invigorating combination of probiotics, vitamins, and a touch of bubbly will keep you going well into the night. And if you are holding off on detoxing, enjoy these light cocktails with New Year’s Day brunch, along with a few flakey Matcha Croissants. Cheers! Looking forward to seeing you in 2015!!

Happy New Year Bonnie! The pictures in this post are absolutely stunning- what lens/camera do you use?
Happy New Year dear Chaya!! My camera is a Canon 70D, and in these photos I used my macro lens. What kind of camera and lenses do you have? I need to get my camera cleaned, there are crumbs and little shmears all over it. 🙂 You consistently have gorgeous photos…we should talk camera sometime! 🙂
Oh i wouod like that and Happy New Year x
Happy New Year’s Justine!! 🙂
It sounds great! I just brewed up my first batch of kombucha. Happy New Year to you! Wishing you a year full of tea-lights.
Wow, what kind did you brew up Steph!? I’m still in the process of reading through Kombucha Revolution. Maybe you can give me a few pointers…hehe. Happy New Year’s to you too!! 🙂
This is my first visit to your blog, and I have to say, this si one of the most creative and loveliest cooking blogs I have ever seen! You recipes are interesting enough to make me want to try them all (or all the ones I have seen, at least!) but they are not too out-there, and your photos are great!
I don’t have any strawberries at home, but I have blueberries and my apple-blueberry kombucha just finished the second fermentation, so I am going to try a variation on this recipe 🙂
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Elisa! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m so impressed that you brew your own kombucha. Any pointers for me when I try? I’ve enjoyed looking through your blog and am an enthusiastic new follower. Looking forward to your posts in 2015…thanks for stopping by so that I could find it! 😉
What a gorgeous way to celebrate! Happy New Year Bonnie!!
Happy New Year Naina! Hope your 2015 is amazing! 😉
I love this brand of Kombucha tea. I had heard it’s great with champagne but had not tried it yet so I’ll be giving this a whirl for sure. Thanks!
Oh I bet it’s great with champagne…it’ll be light, fresh, and lovely! Thank you Rebecca! 🙂
have you ever tried making your own kombucha? i tried once and it was a fail. but i adore the commercial stuff and hibiscus is one of my fave flavors.
i hope you had a lovely new year’s and that this coming year will be a great one for you!
Happy New Year’s Lan! I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s definitely on my to-do list. 🙂 Hibiscus is my fav too…I am in love with the color. Grapefruit comes in as my second favorite. Hope your 2015 is the best year yet!
Happy New Year, Bonnie!!! Wish you an amazing 2015!
That hibiscus kombucha sounds delicious! I have seen many kombucha, but haven’t tried one. Hibiscus makes it super interesting. A pretty cocktail for any occasions!
Oh, thank you Lokness…same to you–hope your 2015 is amazing!! You should really try it the next time you see some. It’s kind of like a not-as-sweet, natural-tasting fizzy soda. I think you’ll like it. 😉
Yum yum yum. The perfect combination of naughty and nice. 🙂
Naughty and nice, the perfect combination!! 😉
Wow this is so fancy! I love the beautiful colour as well 🙂 What a perfect drink
Thank you Lillian! Seems fancy, but it’s actually so simple to put together! Hope you can try one sometime soon. 😉
The drink is so refreshing and delicious! I just had a small dental surgery lately and need a lot of juice and smoothies. I will make this tomorrow! 🙂
Ahh! Dental surgery! Hope you are doing better now Maggie! Happy New Year, hope you love the cocktail, and hope your dental surgery days are over! 🙂
