Most sangria recipes are one-dimensional and suffer from too much added sugar. This easy slow-cooker and watermelon-centric version features artisanal brandy, rose and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as watermelon-infused kombucha, which is naturally low in sugar and effervescent. Big Easy Bucha is handcrafted in New Orleans and certified vegan, plus their sugar content tends to be some of the lowest on the market among kombuchas, and the craft Brandy is also made in the U.S.

- Pour rose, pomegranate juice, 1/2 cup brandy, and triple sec in a slow cooker. Turn on low and let flavors combine for 2 hours.

Chef’s tip: Add lime slices right before serving and gently stir in the kombucha for a slight effervescence.
