I love kombucha. But what if it’s not in your fridge? And what if you’re not willing to fork over those hard-earned 5 bucks for a 16 oz bottle? My answer to this vexing issue is: Fauxbucha! This super-easy-to-make concoction tastes like kombucha, offers probiotic pearls, is good for you, and you can make it at a fraction of the price. What are you waiting for?!

¼ cup apple cider vinegar*

DIRECTIONS
