Strawberry Basil Boochtail

August 18, 2020

The fresh combo of strawberry and basil is delicious - add vodka and you've already got the start of a tasty cocktail. We're taking it one step further by mixing in some kombucha. This healthy carbonated beverage makes a lower sugar option as a mixer than most processed juices out there. Plus, all the positive health benefits of kombucha outweigh the booze and make this guilty pleasure less guilty, right? 

Single Serving/Firelight 750 To-Go

  • 3 oz/7 oz vodka
  • 9 oz/18.5 oz strawberry basil kombucha
  • 1.25 tbl/2.5 tbl agave syrup
  • 0.33 c/0.66 c finely cut strawberries
  • 7/14 fresh basil leaves

Add the strawberries, basil and agave syrup to an empty cocktail shaker (no ice) and muddle. Add the vodka and pour into your ice-filled flask. Top with kombucha.

California Coffee
California Coffee

Our take on the classic "Kentucky Coffee", but with some flavors of west coast life mixed in. We're opting to use a California whiskey, because the South isn't the only place who knows how to make good bourbon! We're particularly fond of Cutwater Spirits bourbon. It also calls for coffee to pep you up and we recommend Drink Coffee Do Stuff Hell Yeah! blend for a little touch of sweet. Lastly, coconut milk, because Californians love our milk alternatives. This delicious drink will warm you up for chilly beach days and it goes down smooth.

Blood, Sweat And Cheers

This story should have been about the perfect cocktails for a Moab trip in April, then it was Whistler in June, then Downieville in August… This cocktail collaboration with Pivot Cycles was to be my anti-bachelor party - for the guys in our High Camp riding crew who didn’t want the traditional tomfoolery of a bachelor party - who just wanted to go somewhere epic and ride. We envisioned a much different storyline for our first promotion with Pivot, but eventually 2020, as we know it, arrived. We postponed our weddings, got refunds for our flights, and then the fear and uncertainty of our new-normal set in.
