Here’s a little comparison: 4 ounces of ginger beer contains almost 20 grams of added sugar while ginger kombucha contains just 4 grams. That’s a big difference for one cocktail! The American Heart Association currently recommends that women consume less than 6 teaspoons of added sugar per day. Drinking two traditional Moscow Mules will definitely take you over that recommendation.
Kombucha is a fermented tea that’s known for its gut-friendly probiotics. Not only does it taste like the real deal Moscow Mule, but it provides health benefits. Kombucha contains antioxidants that help to fight free radicals in the body that may cause inflammation. Volunteer to make this cocktail for your next girl’s night in.
