3 Mocktails to Make With Your Homegrown Herbs

June 5, 2020

Has your windowsill garden been flourishing this spring? If you have some herbs that are ripe for the plucking, toss them into these sweet summer mocktails—which can easily be made boozy if that’s your preference!

Mint-Berry Splash [Tasty]
How does your crop of mint look right now? Trim a few leaves and muddle them with raspberries and blueberries to begin the process of making this Mint-Berry Splash. Then combine it with a spritz of fresh lime, agave or honey, and ice. Once everything’s shaken up nicely, top it off with some sparkling water and embellish the beverage with more fresh berries and mint!

Lemon-Basil Spritzer [The Organic Kitchen]
Nothing says summer like fresh citrus juice! That’s why this light spritzer highlights lemon. You start by muddling lemon wedges with basil fresh from your indoor garden, then add fresh lemon juice and your choice of liquid sweetener. Mix it up with tonic water and ice, and garnish with another lemon wedge and a basil leaf or two.

Rosemary-Grapefruit Mocktail [Like Mother Like Daughter]
Another take on the citrus-focused mocktail, this beverage showcases fresh grapefruit juice. Before you do anything else, enlist some fresh rosemary to make a sweet syrup by combining it with water and sugar on the stove. Once your rosemary syrup is ready, drizzle it into a pitcher with the grapefruit juice and club soda. Pour into individual glasses decorated with sprigs of rosemary and grapefruit wedges, and enjoy!
