The name of this fine drink was crafted from the roots of its ingredients. The Sonoma Sunrise’s name came from a chardonnay wine from Sonoma, and has the qualities of a tequila sunrise. The drink contains organic chardonnay, organic Kombucha from Sonoma County, an entire fresh squeezed orange, a shot of fine tequila (Patron), and a slice of lemon to add to the brim of your glass. The lemon and oranges were purchased from Oliver’s. The chardonnay adds a nice smooth buttery texture to the drink, while giving the drink a silky texture. The Kombucha gives the drink a sparkly citrus base, with a slightly sour yet smooth finish. The fresh squeezed orange juice gives the drink the necessary sweetness – plus there is nothing like fresh squeezed orange juice! We chose Patron tequila for the shot, because we felt that would be a nice smooth additive, and at the same time a give the drink that punch it needs to be a great cocktail.
Overall the Sonoma Sunrise is a very unique hand crafted drink with that contains the intent of combining the spirit fun and health, all the while making it taste as good as possible. All of the ingredients are organic (outside of the tequila) and are of the highest quality. Our goal was to create a product you will feel good about drinking, and as a result… feel good from drinking it. Happy sipping!
Background on Kombucha
The most unique ingredient of our drink has to be the use of Kombucha. Kombucha is made from sweetened tea that’s been fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. It’s a SCOBY, also known as a “mother” because of its ability to reproduce, or a “mushroom” because of its appearance. Kombucha has been around for more than 2,000 years and has a rich anecdotal history of health benefits like preventing and fighting cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases. Kombucha is and has been a very prominent drink in the Eastern hemisphere, mainly in Russia, and China. In the early 20th century there was a push from German, and Russian scientists to find a cure for rising cancer rates. It was the Russians who found that several regions of their vast country were nearly immune to cancer. The common denominator?.. Kombucha! More research pinpointed actual ingredients of the drink that fought cancer, and the research was actually verified.
