Last month, Winston and I traveled to South Lake Tahoe for some much-needed R&R. For the last two years, he and I have taken time to ourselves in the month of September, traveling for a week while our sweet families take care of our girl. (We are SO LUCKY!)
Needless to say, this year’s trip was amazing.
We climbed a mountain and lounged poolside. We kayaked on the prettiest lake I’ve ever seen and ate amazing food, too. And it was incredibly relaxing and laid back.
However, getting back to Dallas was anything but easy—and we ended up stranded in Reno after a freak hailstorm in Vegas delayed our mid-afternoon flight into the late evening.
So we did what any reasonable human beings would do and reserved seats on a direct flight to Dallas the next day, booked ourselves a hotel for the evening and went to sleep.
The next morning, we hiked to a little breakfast place called Two Chicks, where we had a delightful breakfast.
While there, I got my hands on the drink that inspired this Pumpkin Spice Kombucha Cocktail. The restaurant offers kombucha mimosas on their brunch menu, and let me tell you: a kombucha cocktail or mimosa is a brilliant way to start any day!
Since kombucha is lighter and more tart than orange juice, it’s the perfect complement to champagne or prosecco if you’re not into super sweet drinks. It also adds extra bubbles!
What’s not to love about that?

Frequently Asked Questions
Tell me more about why you used Sprouts branded ingredients for this kombucha cocktail recipe.
My friends at Sprouts Farmers Market challenged me to use one of their new pumpkin branded products for a fall-related post, and I discovered that they offer Pumpkin Spice Kombucha in stores now!
Honestly, y’all, I was overjoyed to give this seasonal kombucha a try. While I’m not someone who regularly who swoons over pumpkin spice anything, this kombucha is special. The pumpkin spice adds flavor and a little sweetness without overwhelming the kombucha.
Can I use a different flavor of kombucha?
Absolutely! The cocktail that inspired this one was made with a lavender lemonade kombucha, so the world is your oyster! You might not want to add the cinnamon-sugar rim, depending on the flavors, though.
Could I use cava or champagne instead of prosecco?
Of course! Use what your tastebuds like the most. 🙂
