Blueberry Smash Kambucha

Oh its hot outside! This week started off on a warmer note with temps in the 90s! I can’t drink enough water and don’t really feel like doing anything except just lazing around. On a lazy week like this one I asked one of my twins if she would replicate her mocktail she made last Sunday for Father’s Day.  It’s a refreshing drink with lots of berries, sweetened with honey 😃🐝🍯,  tangy and fizzy from the fermented kambucha.  It also has a herby flavor boost with the addition of fresh mint.  However rather than just muddle the mint it is blended into a pulp along with the blueberries so you get fresh minty flavor all throughout the drink.  Give it a try!
