This watermelon blueberry kombucha wine spritzer mixes muddled watermelon and blueberry with kombucha, blueberry wine and gin! It is the perfect summer spritzer, with a twist! Instead of using soda water or tonic, kombucha is the ingredient that provides the bubbles in this refreshing chilled cocktail.
I serve my spritzer with the muddled fruit in the glass because I enjoy the bite of the fruit (I also like pulp in my orange juice, I know, insane), but you can absolutely serve this strained for a smoother sip. Gin provides an earthy kick to this drink, with a subtle juniper flavor. However, you can substitute the gin with vodka, if vodka is your spirit of choice.
Because this drink is fruity and chilled, it is perfect for sipping on a hot summer night. Pour in the kombucha at the last minute before serving to ensure the most bubbles and the best experience. I hope you enjoy this cocktail as much as I did!

Watermelon Blueberry Kombucha Wine Spritzer
- 3 cups of blueberry wine (or any fruity wine)
- 2 cups of kombucha (I used watermelon flavored)
- 4 shots of gin (or spirit of choice, such as vodka)
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 4 slices of watermelon, seeds removed
- In a mortar and pestle, muddle the blueberries with the watermelon until there are no large chunks left.
- Pour in the wine, gin and muddled blueberries/watermelon into a pitcher. Let sit in the fridge for at least 15 minutes and no longer than 2 hours to infuse the flavors of the fruit.
- When you are ready to serve, pour in your kombucha. At this point, you can serve the cocktail as is, or strain it through a strainer to get the muddled fruit pieces out for a smoother sip. Enjoy!
