Cocktail Saturday: Raspberry Rose Tequila Kombucha. - Half Baked Harvest

Welcome to the first ever Cocktail Saturday!! I am so excited to be starting something a little new here on the site, and to be kicking it off with this fizzy, kind of healthy, raspberry rose tequila kombucha. So many of you mentioned how much you enjoyed my Christmas Drink Saturday posts that I decided it might be fun to do something like that all year long. SO, while I might be a little late in getting these going…here we go!

The first Cocktail Saturday post of the year. Here’s what you need to know about these posts. Alright, so let me tell you about the drink. I thought that I would share a version here on blog, since we make it so often. OH, and while tequila is the alcohol of choice around here, vodka can also be used.

Kombucha Mojitos. - Half Baked Harvest

I am honestly SO excited for today! I mean, obviously because it’s Friday, but more importantly because of these kombucha mojitos! Some of you may not even know what a kombucha is, BUT I’m here to tell you all about them, and I am so pumped! D E S I G N L O V E F E S T. We make a lot of margaritas at home but they’re always on the rocks, never frozen. i love the idea of making a big batch of frozen margaritas for a party and handing them out to your guests on a hot summer day. we created a base that’s delicious on it’s own but can also be adapted with the addition of fruit (we used watermelon, frozen mango and pineapple). the classic version is a great stand alone and if you don’t mind it being tart you can leave out the simple syrup for less sugar. the fruit flavored ones are definitely party worthy and require minimal effort if you’d like to give them a try!


You can keep the garnishes simple, a salted rim, sliced limes and fruit or add a couple of edible flowers like we did. from a hosting perspective, i also appreciate that you can make an entire blender full and use it to serve five people instead of having to shake up individual ones on the rocks! And, Cinco De Mayo is next friday if you’re looking for an excuse to whip these up! Rhubarb Passion Margarita. It’s always a good day when margaritas are involved.

Some days it’s beautiful, and others it’s terrible. The brain is crazy and so complicated, and I love it. Life is a journey. No amount of work or distractions can actually interrupt this beautiful and well desired journey….have you ever searched for a friend? As I sit with my friend on the stone bench waiting for the last of the musketeer to come, I watch lots of colors, girls giggling, and a gush of sand rising. Things fall apart or let’s just say that a long bridge was formed between the two of us, not for any particular reason.

There were days when I was so fueled with the desire to track her down and catch hold of this lady and shake her up: ask her a million things while bringing together wild and golden moments of Love, Laughter and Life, spread over years, precious years of growing up together.

YESSSS. Obviously we need to celebrate this day accordingly with margaritas and all the Mexican food we can stuff in our faces … aka tacos, guacamole, salsa + chips… from now throughout the weekend. Yup, I am totally voting that we just start the weekend off right here, right now. I mean, everyone knows that Thursday is the new Friday, right? Especially when said Thursday is Cinco de Mayo and margaritas clearly need to be consumed. Okok, so I know we can’t be drinking margaritas all day long, but maybe tonight?

Cucumber-Mint Gin Fizz

It’s a spin on the gin fizz that I first discovered at a bar in San Francisco and immediately set out to replicate, and it’s one of those drinks that surprises you with how good it tastes. Granted, the cucumber-mint combo is all fine and dandy, but then you throw basil and elderflower liqueur into the mix and, if you’re anything like me, things start to get dicey. Like, basil?

Pin it! Green Tea Soda. One of the hardest habits I had to break a few years back was kicking the diet soda. I’m not going to lie: it wasn’t easy. I missed that bubbly, sweet sensation… well, until I realized I could make my own sodas and spritzers using sparkling water. Lately I’ve been needing a little something extra to get me through some long afternoons so I decided to combine my passion of green tea with sparkling water and vanilla stevia to create a sweet, sugar-free green tea soda. I’ll probably be sipping this until fall rolls around… (And if you need a little more soda inspiration, some of my fave bubbly drinks include this sugar-free vanilla rosemary soda, a pineapple and cucumber spritzer, and a very tasty ginger spritzer.)

We start by brewing some green tea. I wanted a little extra flavor and sweetness so I used vanilla stevia drops to make it sugar-free, but you can use any sweetener desired (e.g. maple syrup, coconut sugar, honey, etc) or leave it out entirely. Pineapple and Cucumber Spritzer. You know what I’m really good at? Short cuts. I like to call it being efficient and using my time and resources strategically.
