Botanical Herbs In Water Kefir Soda Recipes

Leeza Zurwick

Founder

Part culinary, part alchemy, using fresh botanical herbs to flavour water kefir is a delightful experimental process which can also be medicinal. Their fragrance hits your senses before the taste, so use the freshest botanical herbs you can find.

BOTANICAL HERB WATER KEFIR SODA RECIPE

MAKES: about 4 cups

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups first ferment

1 lime freshly squeezed (sub. 1/2 lemon)

4 pc. dried ginger

1 tbsp. fresh rosemary

1 large sprig thyme

4 sweet cicely seed pods (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
  • Strain the grains and add all ingredients to the swivel top bottle with the first ferment water kefir.
  • Seal up the swivel top bottle and leave it in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.
  • Open slowly, strain and enjoy!

NEED TO KNOW:

Adjust the amount of rosemary and thyme to your taste. They can come on quite strong. Use a gentle hand to start, until you know the strength of your herbs, otherwise it can taste medicinal.

Garnish your drinks with sprigs of fresh botanical herbs and their flowers (when they’re in season) We’ve used rosemary and thyme flowers.

This soda will give your body a big boost of probiotics, magnesium, B vitamins, folate, vitamin K, electrolytes and enzymes.
