A celebration-worthy dessert cocktail
Something about summer coming to an end and impending school year has me always reaching for quintessential summer treats in an attempt to slow the changing s seasons down a bit and enjoy a few more pleasures of summer while I still can.

But, really it makes a great substitute for fizzy beverages in so many recipes! Kombucha is an amazing way to add acidity and fizz to all sorts of drinks! From floats to cocktails and mocktails,
