Use any liquid with a low pH to make a rainbow of naturally colored fun drinks. The pH scale is a measure of how acidic or basic something is, ranging from 0 – 14. The lower the number on the scale, the more acidic. And the higher the number, the more basic or ‘alkaline’. With a measure of 7, right down the middle, being completely neutral. 

  • Lemon and limes have a pH of around 2-3. 
  • While oranges, grapefruits, pineapples, peaches, pears, strawberries and blueberries are all slightly less acidic with a range from 3-5. 
  • Kombucha is acidic, with a pH of around 3, because the main bacteria creates acetic acid through from the fermentation process. 
  • Seltzer (“soda water/sparkling water”) is acidic with a pH of 3-4. Just don’t choose club soda because it is an entirely different product all together and is actually alkaline instead. 
  • White wine has a pH between 3-4 – a great option for a color changing wine spritzer!
