As of now, I am spending my days lazying it up in beautiful Tuscany and probably sipping on a glass of wine as we speak. The weather here is rather different than it is back home- here we got a stable 30 degrees celcius, which makes for a lovely glass of refreshing Kombucha Drink.
Ever heard of Kombucha? No? Well, it’s supposed to be this amazing, wonderful drink- especially for our gut health. It is loaded with the good bacterias and has been drunk in China for centuries. It’s not a typical Nordic drink, but it has indeed found its way to the Nordic Region and is now brewed locally around the regions.
This drink is fairly simple – a splash of lemon syrup cooked with rosemary and topped off with a local raspberry kombucha. Throw in a couple of ice cubes in there and you got yourself a lovely, healthy summer drink.
Can of course be made with alcohol for those late summer evenings.
