  • 1 lime wheel
  • 1½ ounces Tuthilltown Indigenous Apple Vodka
  • 2 ounces Reed’s Goji Ginger kombucha
  • Sprig of mint, for garnish

In mixing glass, muddle the mint, apple juice and lime. Add ice and the vodka. Stir until chilled. Double-strain into a double rocks glass, and top with the kombucha. Garnish with a sprig of mint and candied ginger.
