This beautiful blackberry lime drink combination is the perfect marriage of tart and sweet. The tart lime and sweet blackberries give a great deal of life to the water kefir, as berries tend to make for a bubblier beverage and infuse a very noticeable flavor.
4 cups first ferment water kefir
1/2 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen and gently mulled
2 tbsp lime juice
Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
Add lime juice to a clean, swivel top bottle.
Add blackberries into the bottle one at a time, squishing them slightly to pop the berry and allow the juice to run.
Strain grains, and add the first ferment to the bottle.
Seal up the swivel top bottle, and leave it in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.
Refrigerate until well chilled.
Open slowly, strain and enjoy your live probiotic blackberry lime soda!
NEED TO KNOW:
We like using organic berries whenever possible to avoid pesticides. If organic is not possible, make sure you have rinsed your berries well.
