I read an article the other day, it said that more than half of older millenials drink Kombucha.
I knew almost nothing about this beverage except that I once saw a guy buying several bottles of it in a supermarket, and he had a mustache and wore an hawaiian shirt, and I was pretty sure he was the kind of guy saying that it's ok to go out with a Joy Division T-shirt as long as it's done ironically.
The problem is that I wear my Joy Division T-shirt in a totally non-ironic way (mainly because I don't know how to wear something ironically). Anyway, after that, I thought I wasn't trendy enough to drink kombucha myself.
But reading this article changed my mind, actually it was my DUTY as an older millenial to try kombucha. I want my future grand-children to remember me as a person who fully embraced that glorious millenial era when she was young(ish).
Even if that meant drinking a beverage involving bacteria+yeast (=fungus). Don't get me wrong, I don't mind drinking fungus. I'm French, I was raised to eat disgusting stuff. As a kid, long before I became a vegetarian, my favorite meals involved snails, pigs feet and andouillette (I don't want to explain that one, you can look for yourself...). And I do believe that the more the cheese smells, the best it tastes
So it's not a bit of fungus that will scare me. I tried apple kombucha, and I'm happy I did. I think it's pretty good, and a great non-alcoholic alternative for apéro.
