Kimchi Brine Michelada

KIMCHI, DrinksAlana Holloway
Kimchi Brine Michelada

This gut healthy cocktail couldn’t be easier to make and is the perfect thing to enjoy when the sun is shining and food flowing. Now I very rarely drink alcohol but if there’s one thing I love in the Summer, it’s a cold beer. This Michelada is what I imagine the love child of a Bloody Mary and shandy would be like, with a hint of the salty citrus kick you get when shooting tequila… as an ode to your youth! Give it a go, I’m sure you’ll love it.

Serves 2

150ml Kimchi brine
300ml ice cold lager
400ml ice cold ginger or original Kombucha
Juice 1 lime

Optional: a few drops of tobasco


  • Empty the a jar of Kimchi into a sieve and press to squeeze all the brine out into a 1L jug using the back of a spoon.

  • Pour in the remaining ingredients and stir to combine

  • Wet the rim of two glasses with a wedge of lime before lightly coating with sea salt (do this by dipping the rim into a plate of sea salt)

  • Pour the cocktail into the glasses and put your feet up before sipping… you deserve it!
