Author Notes: Celebrating Mardi Gras with a healthy cocktail today! Instead of using sugary liqueurs and juices laden with the bad stuff, I chose my favorite organic, raw drink from Synergy, their Guava Goddess Kombucha. The kombucha component of the mixer adds a bit of fizz, as well as probiotics, while the guava adds an exotic fruity flair. Not to mention, the drink is full of electrolytes and antioxidants, which is something your body will always appreciate.
I chose light rum over grain-based liquors as the alcohol and healthy garnishes of pomegranate and fresh mint to add a tart, refreshing finishing note. This drink is stirred, not shaken [opposite of James Bond], so as not to lose the fizz of the kombucha.
And if you're not on the sauce, this drink is just as festive and fruity as a mock-tail! Just leave the rum out and replace with additional Synergy. If you're not a guava fan, you can easily use another fruity flavor of choice. —Kait Turshen
