THE BAT AT THE ATHENAEUM

Joe-Tepache

Tepache is said to be Kombucha’s newest competition. Popular in Mexico, this pineapple and cinnamon-based beverage is the perfect sustainable option, with the pineapple skin and core being the star of the show…

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1/2 pineapple (cut into 1 inch chunks)
  • 500ml water
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 45ml Jose Cuervo tequila
  • ½ fresh lime
  • 1 x pineapple leaf (to garnish)

METHOD

  1. Prepare the Tepache by combining the brown sugar and water until the sugar has dissolved. Add the pineapple chunks and cinnamon stick and cover with a cheese cloth or towel (do not seal completely – it needs to be able to breathe).
  2. Allow the Tepache to ferment for 2-3 days.
  3. Once the Tepache has fermented, pour it into a glass and add the Jose Cuervo tequila and the juice of half a fresh lime.
  4. Add the pineapple leaf to garnish.
