Sparkling Kombucha Bellini
Though a regular bellini is a classic in and of itself, nothing will leave stars in your eyes as quickly as the kombucha bellini from Coletta in NYC.
In its most typical form, a bellini is simple: just a mixture of prosecco and peach puree or nectar. The result is a sweet, easily sipped beverage frequently served alongside brunch.
As so often seen in our Italian-inspired culinary menu, Coletta takes this classic favorite and elevates it, adding a touch of creativity and sophistication you won’t soon forget.
By introducing kombucha into this beverage, our mixologists tone down the sweetness, replacing the sugary taste of a classic bellini with something far richer and more mature. No longer is this drink relegated to the brunch table; with this simple twist, our kombucha bellini becomes the perfect pairing for any meal, from breakfast to dinner!
The gentle bubbles created by the fermentation process of our kombucha soften the more prominent carbonation of prosecco. The overall result is a gently sparkling beverage that is guaranteed to leave a positive mark on your day.
The perfect balance of gut-healthy kombucha, fresh peach syrup, and spirit-lifting prosecco, this is sure to become the highlight of your next vegan brunch, lunch, or dessert!
Benefits of Kombucha
The kombucha bellini from Coletta in NYC is more than just a tasty beverage; it is a picture of balance, offering the fun of a traditional bellini hand-in-hand with some hidden health benefits.
Kombucha– a gently fermented beverage thought to have originated in China or Japan– is created from a base of green tea. This fermentation process is mild enough to only contribute trace amounts of alcohol, not enough to bring any form of “buzz” on its own.
Instead of producing large quantities of alcohol, this process creates something even more intriguing: healthy probiotics.
As this tea ferments, the healthy bacteria multiply. A happy consequence of this includes the production of lactic acid bacteria, which in proper quantities, can lead to lower inflammation and improved digestion.
What’s more, because this delicious, fizzy beverage starts as tea, it comes complete with all the benefits commonly associated with green tea, including antioxidants, reduced risk of heart disease, and improved kidney functioning!
