Kombucha.

1 LO BROS PEACH & GIN­GER KOMBUCHA

Few flavours cap­ture the essence of sum­mer like peaches at peak ripeness, and those in favour of a sweeter style will rel­ish this fizzy, fruit-for­ward tonic. Serve over ice for a sunny, sat­is­fy­ing pick-me-up, or start the party and tip some into a Rum Punch. $4.49 for 330ml. lo­bros.co

2 ROK BERRY BEATS KOMBUCHA

If the hazy, sunset-pink colour isn’t en­tic­ing enough, then the del­i­cate taste of this Mar­garet River kombucha cer­tainly is. Cold-pressed straw­ber­ries, el­der­ber­ries and hi­bis­cus join forces with white and green tea, leav­ing a pure, berry-scented im­pres­sion that’s sub­tle rather than syn­thetic. $4.99 for 365ml. rokkom­bucha.com.au

3 KOMBUCHA ME ELDERFLOWER KOMBUCHA

There’s raw­ness and fresh­ness aplenty here, with a vine­gary kick and the scent of elderflower buds and petals, which are added at the fi­nal stage of fer­men­ta­tion. If the fes­tive season took its toll, put down the pét-nat and raise a glass of this in­stead. $4.90 for 330ml. kom­buchame.com.au

4 HERBS OF LIFE GIN­GER & TURMERIC KOMBUCHA

Aus­tralian gin­ger and turmeric root lend warmth to this brew made from or­ganic in­gre­di­ents in the Blue Moun­tains. The spice level is sub­tle, al­low­ing notes of white pep­per and orange peel to en­ter the fold. $4.25 for 330ml. herb­soflife.com.au

5 MAILER MCGUIRE JAS­MINE GREEN TEA KOMBUCHA

Re­lax­ation can come in a bot­tle, it seems. The scent of jas­mine flow­ers in bloom is noth­ing if not invit­ing, and the tan­nic grip of green tea keeps you want­ing more. Kick back, top up and make it a lazy af­ter­noon. $19 for 1 litre. pn­vmer­chants.com
