Mojito-flavored Water Kefir


Mint, lime, and sweet-tangy water kefir come together to form this incredibly refreshing drink perfect for a hot day. Pour over and ice and serve it to your guests with a sprig of mint while you shoot the breeze on your front porch.


  • 3-1/2 cups cultured water kefir
  • 1 tablespoon mint leaves, bruised to release flavor
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar if needed for sweetness


  1. Combine water kefir with mint, lime juice, and sugar in airtight bottles, leaving headspace in each one.
  2. Cap tightly and allow to culture for 2 to 5 days, or until carbonated to your liking.
  3. Chill. 

Open carefully in case the contents of the bottles overflow. Strain out the mint and serve cold or over ice.
