Kombucha Coffee.. What's that?

I have a friend that is obsessed with Kombucha drinks while the rest of my friends have no idea what it is.  I went to a new product launch cocktail party last night for the launch of Tonica Kombucha's Coffee Kombucha Beverage.  I have tried a few different Kombucha drinks because I know that the health properties of Kombucha drinks are really good for you.   This Kombucha is a digestive drink.  This particular brand is 100% Canadian, Organic and Naturally Raw.  It is brewed in small batches and it's filled with living enzymes, healthy bacteria and liver cleansing acids that are fermented.   That might not sound great but what it does is fight the bad stuff in your gut by putting in the good bacteria.

I attended a little cocktail event to launch their new Coffee Kombucha in their North York Warehouse which was set up very nicely with standee tables with candles and tented tables lit with white Christmas lights.   They had a small band playing live music and a bartender set up where they were mixing a Mocktail and a Cocktail using the Coffee Kombucha.   I tried the Mocktail and it was delicious.  It tasted like a pumpkin pie spice cappuccino a bit.  It was very spicy and warming even though it was an iced drink.  It looked like an Iced Cappuccino.  The cocktail had Rum and a few different ingredients added.   I could really see people that are coffee drinkers that want to kick the coffee habit start switching to this drink to get a bit of what they get from coffee.  It's not the same but it is a 100% better for you.  

I recently purchased some Kombucha that was on special.  I took one sip and was not a fan of that particular flavour.   Not true in this case.  I really enjoyed the kicked up drink.  I will have to taste one with out the additions but it didn't have a strong fermented taste that others do.

The food at the event was provided by NUD Fud and Raw Foodz.   NUD fud produce organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free snack foods they had some Apple Crisp treats and some Cocoa flavoured treats as well as Chia Coconut pudding.

Raw Foodz produces Organic, Raw Vegan Cream Cheese Spread and Dip and dressings and their food was served in little cups with crudite, in a Kale Caesar Salad and also a mixed vegetable dish served in a Chinese Take Out Container.

It was a nice event created by a group of women who were obviously set out to change the health of the products we buy in our grocery and convenience stores.  Women on a mission to change the way we eat and drink for our health.
