Black Friday Kombucha Cocktail Party

Black & Blue, in Easton, will host a Lehigh Valley Kombucha tasting event from 8 p.m. until close on Black Friday, November 24, featuring kombucha cocktails and live music. Lehigh Valley Kombucha will be available at 12 wine bottles for $75. Black and Blue offers an ever-changing eclectic food menu for vegans and carnivores, including an international beer list, hand-picked wines, crafted cocktails and a variety of absinthe.

Kombucha, a probiotic beverage whose origins date back at least 2,000 years, is produced by fermenting tea with sugar and a culture of yeast and beneficial bacteria. The sugar and caffeine are “digested” during fermentation, leaving an effervescent drink rich in enzymes and amino acids. “Think of it as healthy soda,” says Lehigh Valley Kombucha Founder Gary Warren. “The fermentation produces a very low alcohol content, less than one-half of one percent, which is monitored by the local licensing authority.”

Location: 683 Walnut St., Easton. For more information, call 610-417-2139. To order online visit Facebook.com/LehighValleyKombucha.
