I love fermented drinks. BUT. They are so, dang, expensive! It’s nice to know that there are a few clever kids out there doing a bit of trial and error and creating pretty fancy pants recipes for drinks like this kvass tonic.
My last foray into ferments, ended up a bit of a disaster. Ginger-ade that funkified itself on my bench top. Gross. That said, I have had success with beets and sauerkraut. So perhaps this kvass tonic is my next time to shine!
I’m keen to make amends with this pink brew and hopefully be able to do as the recipe suggests and sustainably pour off and bottle the tonic, and make a second batch with the same ingredients. Here’s hoping!
Plans also in the works to try the beets in a salad afterwards and try the turmeric raw…why not!
I’ll report back in 2-6 days!

Before you crinkle your nose and press the dislike button, hear me out! It was actually delicious.
Yesterday, I went tripping down to Mornington to meet babies and have brilliant catch ups. We visited Store Fifteen for said latte and some lunch.
I had the warm chia porridge pot. A picture tells 1000 words doesn’t it?
It was fruity but not too sweet, just right! (don’t mistake me for goldilocks now!)
Touted for its stamina and blood flow inducing, blood pressure lowering benefits, beetroot surprisingly holds its own in the warm drink stakes too. Store Fifteen use cold pressed juice and their own almond mylk to create these little glasses of heaven!
I’m definitely going to try and recreate this one with some of my homemade milk that I blogged about here.
I’ve made a golden latte before too – a recipe for you to try coming soon!
Definitely worth a trip to the Mornington Peninsula over the summer months to try their smoothies and juices.
Got any good cafe tips for me?I love finding new ones to visit!
