Tulsi & Peach Kombucha Mocktail

with Apples + Calendula

This mocktail is brimming with botanical benefits; adaptogenic herbal infusion from Tulsi plus anti-inflammatory, antiviral and digestive supportive fizzy from ginger and turmeric kombucha plus heart-healthy fresh peaches.  

 

This is simply delicious!   A refreshing, summery, grown-up mocktail that is low in sugar and has a lovely local, in-season herbal vibe.  I used Kombucha from Urban Farm Fermentory in Portland, Maine

 

Tulsi, also known as holy basil or sacred basil, is native to India and a member of the Lamiaceae family or mint family that consists of many aromatic and medicinal plants.  Tulsi is a prominent Ayurvedic herb known for its adaptogenic properties that helps our body adapt to physical, chemical and emotional stress. 

 

Modern-day science is only just beginning to recognize the many healthful qualities of this beautiful and powerful ancient sacred herb.  If you are not familiar with Tulsi, I encourage you to grow it, use food as medicine and feed the pollinators too, as they adore this plant!
