If you haven’t done so already, I’d recommend checking out my recent Top 30 Most Favorite Recipes in 2019 list for a few great options, all stemming from vegan options, gluten-free, seafood, and more.

This list was all based on what many of you preferred!

And if you’re into delicious drink options, then you can always check out our Drink Archives. There you’ll find great smoothie options, detox drinks, and mocktails (where alcohol can be added, if preferred).

When it comes to this mocktail in particular, I’m so happy to share this recipe with you all because it’s SO GOOD!

Originally, I wanted to use Blackberries, however, I later switched things up with Blueberries and I’m so glad that I did. For a little fizz, I chose to use sparkling water, however, you can use a Lime-flavored carbonated drink such as La Croix or keep things simple with a non-flavored version.

Tips & Tricks

STORAGE: Ginger-Mint syrup can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed jar for up to a week. **Can be made as a traditional Ginger drink with the Mint leaves OR enjoyed with the fizz from the Carbonated Water.** Best if consumed within a few days.
SWEETENER: You can always use maple syrup, ‘honey’, agave instead of using pure cane sugar + honey. This makes for a more subtle sweet taste. For Bee Free Honee, click link.

  1. Our teens wanted to put together some mocktails for the New Year and this was just what they were looking for! So delicious and easy to make!

  2. I love how vibrant this drink looks! This month it’s my turn to host ‘Ladies Night’ for my friends. And I’ve been looking for some non-alcoholic drinks that will not just taste amazing but will also look pretty. These will fit the bill. Thank you for the inspiration. 🙂
