Here’s to your health! Raise a glass to the new year with this healthy-ish take on the martini. Fizzy kombucha, filled with good yeast and bacteria, makes a tongue-tantalizing base for a festive cocktail.


½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) vodka
¼ cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) unsweetened cranberry juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) ginger-lemon kombucha, such as Humm brand
6 frozen cranberries


In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice. Add ice to fill, cover, and shake for 20 seconds. Strain the mixture into martini glasses and top up with the kombucha. Garnish with the cranberries and serve.

  1. Absolutely yummy, made them for a party we had earlier this year and they all went, I barely got a look-in so I’m doing them again for our Halloween party.

  2. Being a vegetarian, I’m going to attempt these with some Quorn cocktail sausages, but not sure how well they will work..

  3. I really enjoyed these BUT be careful how you serve them! I served the sausages and what ever was left in the pan i poured on top, however when they cooled all the fat congealed and it looked awful!

    However when they were got they were really tasty and everyone enjoyed them. They were quick and easy to make. I would make them again but serve them with less of the “sauce”
