Aries Golden Fleece Kombucha

Aries Season is March 21-April 19. A sign ruled by Fire, we recall in Greek mythology, Aries was the winged ram with golden wool who rescued two children from death. Aries’ wool becomes the sacrificial “Golden Fleece.”

Aries Golden Fleece Kombucha is a tasty combination led by pineapple, and brewers can use pineapple juice, fresh pineapple, frozen and thawed pineapple, or even dehydrated pineapple.

The Golden Fleece is a symbol of strength, courage, and victory. It is also a symbol of the power of love. With this recipe, I give a wink to my soulmate Eric, the brave Aries in my life 🔥❤

  • Pineapple – Fresh, frozen, dehydrated, or juice (2 tbsp)
  • Sage  – 3 leaves dried or fresh, crushed between your fingers 
  • Lemon juice – One squirt (about ½ tsp)

Use up Leftovers AND REDUCE WASTE

Freeze unused fruit parts for frugal and fast flavoring!

For example, in this recipe, the pineapple core you’d normally throw out or compost can be cut up into matchsticks and frozen in a freezer-safe container. 

Check out my illustration below:

Running short on time when your brewing cycle is up? Just pop some of these frozen, thawed pineapple core matchsticks in your booch bottle instead of fresh pineapple. They provide the same added flavor to your kombucha flavor process and save you time and money!

Jupiter’s Kiss Kombucha

Jupiter’s Kiss is my kombucha flavor blend of orange, rosemary, and rosehip 🌿 Much like oranges, rosehips are rich in Vitamin C 👍 And, rosehip’s belly-like fruits are said to belong to Jupiter. Did you know Jupiter has between 80 and 95 moons?

For Jupiter’s Kiss, and any kombucha flavor involving rosehips, I crush the dried bellies with a spoon to expose the sweet, floral fruit to the kombucha flavor.

Oranges are readily available any time of year. When combined with the earthly taste of rosemary, a dash of local maple syrup, and a squirt of local maple syrup, a robust kombucha results!

  • Fresh navel orange – Peeled (3 sections cut into bottle-size pieces)
  • Rosemary – Dried or fresh (3 tiny leaves)
  • Rosehip – Dried, crushed (1)
  • Fresh ginger – a dime to penny-sized slice (1 tbsp)
  • Maple Syrup – (1 squirt)

💘 Rosehips can also be used as a charm to attract health and ward against nightmares. Keep this in mind during the flavoring process of your special kombucha.

Local honey, dried elderberries, candied ginger, anise are shown on a mantle featuring natural druzy quartz in stone.

Immunity Boost Kombucha

Make an immunity-boosting kombucha, and your future self will thank you! I am a big proponent of the regular consumption of elderberry syrup to improve immunity. Elderberries are full of vitamin C and are a good source of antioxidants. You can even make one kombucha bottle of this during your regular flavor process.

Simply throw a few dried berries into your kombucha bottle during the flavoring process. Be sure to add a little sweet support from ginger and honey to aid in the fermentation process. Personalize this with a clove, candied ginger (as shown in the photo), anise, lemon juice …let your imagination run wild!

  • Elderberry – dried berries (6)
  • Fresh ginger – a dime to penny-sized slice (1 tbsp)
  • Local honey (1 squirt)

You may want to skim this one before drinking – the elderberries aren’t the tastiest to eat 🫢

Interested in learning more about elderberries? Make sure you’ve looked at my DIY elderberry syrup recipe.

Just like kombucha: When you make elderberry syrup at home, you can really customize it to your tastes. For example, sometimes, I omit the cinnamon and add rosehips, lavender, dried lemon balm, or lemon verbena from my garden 💚

Pisces Pour Kombucha

Pisces Season is February 19-March 20. As a water sign, the twin fish born during this period have a keen ability to express their creativity and artistic ability like no one else.  Pisces, the last sign of the astrological new year, are ruled by Neptune, which governs ingenuity and dreams.

Boundless imagination come together in Pisces Pour for a sweet and not-at-all-basic kombucha. Consider the Pisces in your own life and reflect upon the beauty they bring to the world while effortlessly adapting to their surroundings when brewing this recipe.

Fresh, frozen, or even dehydrated peaches give kombucha a sensual and sweet flavor. Introduce a little fresh, frozen, dehydrated pineapple, or even a splash of pineapple juice, and this brew will strike a chord during the intuitive Pisces season. 

  • Peach – thawed frozen, fresh (2 tbsp)
  • Pineapple – fresh, frozen, or juice (juice is shown) (1 tbsp)
  • Fresh ginger – a dime to penny-sized slice (1 tbsp)
  • Lemon verbena – one dried (or fresh) leaf
