Nautical Gin-Ginger-Kombucha Gimlet!
Seacoast Lately was recently presented with a challenge. When a situation like this comes up, includes friendly competition, gets our creative juices flowing, and incorporates local products (like Nautical Gin), we almost ALWAYS say "yes". I teamed up with my friend Morgan Avery -- a healthy recipe-making guru who hails from The Fresh Press in Portsmouth. We wanted to put a unique spin on our recipe, and below is what we mustered up!
A note from Morgan... "This drink is amazing for gut health, at least as far as cocktails go! Ginger is incredibly beneficial for digestion, as is the probiotic drink, kombucha. I would drink it and as a non-drinker that's saying a lot!"
Are you ready to give the Ginger-Kombucha Gimlet a try??
Ingredients (Serves 2)
½ cup Nautical Gin
2 oz. fresh lime juice
2 oz. agave nectar
Splash of ginger juice*
Splash of kombucha**
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, lime juice, agave nectar, ginger juice. Shake for 20 seconds, then strain into two glasses. Finish with a splash of kombucha.
*We used freshly juiced ginger root, but recommend this brand if a juicer is not available to you. Add another splash if you're looking for an extra kick!
**We're into this ginger-lemon kombucha, but you can use another brand or flavor. Sparkling water is a great substitution too.
A note from the makers...
"Your next adventure begins with Nautical Gin. We searched the world to find the most exotic ingredients - and our discovery of more than 10 unique botanicals led to an exceptional new gin with notes of citrus and spice. To round out the bold taste experience, a rare coastal botanical - the inspiration for our name - delivers a subtle hint of sea salt. Enjoy Nautical Gin on the rocks, with tonic or in your favorite class gin cocktail. May every glass you raise salute your never-ending spirit of exploration and adventure". -Nautical Gin
