I make this beautiful pink-red soup with ginger kombucha, but you can also make it with ginger beer, gingerale or another purchased or homemade berry kombucha. It gives the raspberry soup with ginger and sumak just a little kick. The pinch of tangy sumac not only looks beautiful, but gives the sweet soup exactly the right fresh-fruity taste. If you have raspberries in two colors or have found salmonberries you can make half the recipe with each berry and make a pretty swirl.
