Kombucha Chia Fresca Margarita

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 0 minutes
Servings 1 to 2 portions
Chia seeds become gelatinous when soaked in liquid, which despite the way that sounds, provides a very pleasant texture perfect for any Chia Fresca. What's a Chia Fresca you ask? Essentially, it's our take on a refreshing lemonade-type drink with chia seeds. After all, who wouldn't want that extra boost of Omega-3 and fibre the chia adds? Don't stop at lemonade though- when the feeling is right, add the chia to your cocktails (or mocktails) and sip it on a sunny afternoon!

How It's Made


  • 1/4 (2 oz) cup of tequila
  • 1/8 (1 oz) cup of triple sec or Cointreau
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) of lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1 lime for garnish
  • A dash of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) of water
  • 2 teaspoons of
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) of Kombucha of your choice
  • A few ice cubes
  • Rim with cane sugar


  1. Cut the lime in round slices. Dip the rim of the glass in some lime juice, then roll in cane sugar to get a nice sweet rim.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the water and chia seeds. Set aside for 20 minutes while the chia turns into gel. In a cocktail shaker, or a mason jar, mix together the alcohols, lime juice, maple syrup, ice cubes and chia gel. Secure the lid and give it a good shake.
  3. Add the kombucha, stir quickly and serve in your pre-rimmed glasses. Garnish with a slice of lime.
