‘Tis the season for pumpkin! Invite friends for an at-home brunch and mix Pumpkin Spice Kombucha Cocktails! These effervescent brunch cocktails call for just two ingredients and are served in a glass with a cinnamon-sugar rim. Makes 1 drink, but can easily be doubled or tripled.
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 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.
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 to the late evening.
We ended up staying the night in Reno.
The next morning, we hiked to a little breakfast place called Two Chicks, where we ate 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!
Why I love this recipe:
This Pumpkin Spice Cocktail with Kombucha is bubbly and perfect.
All you need is Pumpkin Spice Kombucha, which I picked up from my local Sprouts, and your favorite sparkling wine.
You also can add a cinnamon-sugar rim to your glass, elevating this super simple fall favorite cocktail!
Since kombucha is lighter and more tart than orange juice, it’s a lovely complement to champagne or prosecco if you’re not into super sweet drinks. (The champagne or sparkling wine also adds extra bubbles!)
What’s not to love about that?

Erin’s Easy Entertaining Tips
As y’all should know by now, brunch at home is one of my favorite activities to host!
Why? Brunch is fun for all age groups, not just adults, and as someone who has small kids, I appreciate entertaining events where my kids fit right in.
This pumpkin drink would be a delicious (and easy!) addition to an at-home brunch!
- Serve it like you would a Mimosa Bar. Let guests rim their glasses and pour their own.
- Mix up the flavors. While I love the pumpkin spice kombucha, you could very easily use ginger kombucha or another flavor!
- Have fun with it! Kombucha cocktails are incredibly simple to make at home, so have fun with them and get creative!
Frequently Asked Questions
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, 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.
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.
Of course! Use what your tastebuds like the most. 🙂
