The ‘booch is coming along! I began test tasting it around day 7, and by day 9 I had the sweet to acid ratio I was looking for. So it’s time for the second ferment! I decided to make two bottles of plain kombucha and then a cinnamon apple flavor. I simply added a few slices of apple and some cinnamon sticks. Easy peasy! This will sit on the counter for another 2 days and then into the refrigerator we go.
Travel tip: Blue Moon is apparently not always a beer. In Australia (and I suspect parts of Europe) a Blue Moon is actually a cocktail. So if your boyfriend orders a Blue Moon expecting a beer and gets a girly gin-based cocktail, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
At least he got the orange slice he wanted!
Blue Moon Cocktail
2 oz. dry gin
1/2 oz. Crème Yvette or crème de violette
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: lemon twist (or orange slice, apparently)
