Healthy Recipe: Holiday Kombucha Cocktail by Taboocha | Liv

This Christmas-themed cocktail is courtesy of the creative geniuses over at local kombucha brand Taboocha. They’ve paired one of their seasonal flavours, Banana Cinnamon Black Tea, with spirits and spices for a luxurious holiday tipple that’s gut-friendly to boot!

You can purchase 750ml bottles of the exclusive Christmas flavour ($180) or a set of two bottles ($350) online, with a $10 donation made to Sai Kung Stray Friends for each bottle sold.

Makes one serving.


  • 30ml rum (either white or dark works, but dark offers a richer, more complex flavour)
  • 120-150ml Taboocha’s Banana Cinnamon Black Tea kombucha
  • lemon zest or an orange peel strip
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


  1. Fill a glass of your preference with 1-3 ice cubes (big cubes are better).
  2. Add the rum, kombucha and lemon zest, and stir gently. If using the orange peel, twist it over the drink first to express the oil, then tuck the peel into the glass.
  3. Drink and be merry!
