Kombucha Revolution_Stephen LeeVodka isn’t exactly a mainstay in most wellness regimens. But balance is—which means it’s entirely possible to be the type of person who loves to down dog and down the occasional cocktail.

Particularly when that cocktail is mixed with kombucha, the black tea beloved for its probiotic powers, and known to have a small amounts of alcohol introduced during its fermentation process. That’s where Stephen Lee, and author of the new Kombucha Revolution, comes in.

Stephen Lee Kombucha Revolution recipes“The idea of detoxifying while being refreshingly lifted is the perfect paradox,” Lee says. So, while it has a low amount of alcohol, “kombucha is alive, teeming with beneficial microorganisms and active bacterial cultures that…provide the body with a great source of nutrition,” writes Lee, who also owns Kombucha Wonder Drink.

To make his cool cocktails, you could try brewing your own kombucha at home like these fanatics (Lee’s book has a super simple road map) or just buy your own—then get creative with ginger and bitters, freshly blended farmer’s market fruit, and spicy herbs.

Here are three delicious recipes to try—maybe after a grueling workout on a steamy summer night? Cheers to healthy paradoxes! —Molly Gallagher
