This savory tomato drink is complemented well by the sweet-tartness of kombucha. Sprinkle hot sauce to taste for a spicy kick.
6 tomatoes, or 1½ cups tomato juice
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 red bell pepper
4 celery stalks
1/2 cup chopped green onion, green parts only
1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1/2 cup plain kombucha
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
Hot sauce, such as Tabasco, to taste
Tools: juicer, pitcher, spoon
Glass: highball or pint
Garnish: celery stalk
Run the tomatoes, green pepper, red pepper, celery, green onion, and cilantro through a juice according to the manufacturers instructions. Pour the finished juice into a pitcher along with the ½ cup of kombucha. Add salt and hot sauce to taste. Serve the juice as-is, or add a shot of vodka for a fresh, tangy Bloody Mary. Garnish if desired.
