Inspired by one of the original drinks from the Erewhon Tonic Bar, this is a live probiotic, hydrating and alkalizing drink that is our go-to for recovery whenever we are arrive back home after flying and traveling. It is also a great thing to reach for after a hard workout!
This recipe will make enough for 2-4 people, however, even if you are enjoying it by yourself, know that it will keep well in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 days. If you are purchasing coconut water kefir, it will usually be packaged in a 16 ounce bottle, so to save time and money, we based the proportions around one full bottle. Because this is a live fermentation, be sure to seal it in a jar or container with an airtight lid. Remember... Your margarita is alive! Pressure can build up in the bottle, so open it carefully over your sink. Always open coconut water kefir bottles the same way!
