The lovely combination of whiskey, citrus, mint, and kombucha come together in one tasty drink that is full of life and good energies. —Tasty Plan

Test Kitchen Notes

When I originally read this I thought that the mixture of flavors would be a bit too much when combined, but they all married together really nicely. The kombucha lends its effervescence to the drink, but doesn't overpower it. I personally like to nibble on mint in drinks, so I didn't mind that this drink wasn't strained. It wasn't too sweet, and the acid really stood out and went together nicely with the whiskey. This drink is something I could see myself drinking in the summer because it's very refreshing. —Sarahgreenbean

A Mortar is the bowl you mash stuff in. The Pestle is the masher. Also, for cocktails it's typically a muddler. Otherwise, this sounds tasty!
