But anyways, getting back to our yummy flavor, we aren’t going to talk about how to make kombucha today.

Instead we are focusing on how to flavor our Kombucha once it’s made!

1. Bottles

I usually use bottles that I have saved from store bought Kombucha, or you can purchase these glass bottles that are the same size.

Also, I want to start experimenting with these swing top glass bottles to see if they will make a more fizzy second ferment.

I will keep you posted with the results!

2. Cranberry Juice

I use organic pure cranberry juice, not a cranberry juice co*cktail (although that would probably be yummy too:). Pure cranberry juice is more tart than a blended juice.

3.Orange Juice

You can juice your own or buy store bought organic orange juice.

How To Flavor Kombucha

Ok, now that you’ve gathered your ingredients, let’s get started!

1. First add 1 ounce of cranberry juice to your bottles.

This is a matter of preference so feel free to experiment with the amount to find the flavor that you enjoy most!

2.Next add about 2 to 3 ounces of orange juice to your bottles.

This is also according to taste. I don’t usually measure it exactly, I just kind of eyeball it.

The above picture shows how much of both juices combined that I add to my bottles.

3. The last ingredient that you need to add is your prepared Kombucha!

Fill it all the way to the top.

4. And finally, you are going to screw on the lids and put your bottles in a dark cabinet.

You want to allow your Kombucha to complete it’s second ferment.

This will take anywhere from one to three days. You need to leave it for at least a full 24 hours to give the Kombucha time to eat a portion of the natural sugars in the flavorings.

The longer you leave it the more fizzy it will be.

But do not leave it longer than the three days. Leaving it longer than the three days will increase the alcohol content of your Kombucha, making it unsafe for children.

And that’s it! How easy is it to make Cranberry Orange Kombucha?!
