Ginger-Blueberry Mocktail Ingredients
Here's what you need to whip up these simple and elegant fizzy drinks for NYE:
Agave. You can also use honey if you prefer. Maple syrup also works.
Lime juice. I recommend fresh-squeezed.
Ginger beer. This adds the bubbles and a hit of ginger flavor to your drink.
I love to fill my glasses with edible garnishes. For this ginger-blueberry recipe, I like to add more fresh berries, lime wedges, and something herbal like rosemary. You could try thyme too!
Drinks for a Crowd
If you'd like to serve glasses of ginger blueberry drink for a whole party, go for it! You can combine all of the ingredients except for the ginger beer in a big pitcher with ice. Then to serve, divide the drink between glasses and top with a floater of ginger beer.
In a bowl, add the fresh blueberries, blackberries and lime juice, mulling (crushing) everything together until fruit are fully broken down. Add in the water and Agave and stir until combined. NOTE: Add additional sweetener depending on sweetness desired.
To Make Mocktails: Add crushed ice to glass(es) or flutes, Add 3-4 Tbsps of mulled blackberries/blueberries to bottom of glass, followed by ½ cup of mocktail liquid mixture and top with ginger beer until filled. For additional garnish, add fresh blackberries/blueberries, sliced lime, and rosemary sprigs. Repeat for every serving.
Sip and Enjoy!
Tips & Tricks
SWEETENER: Instead of Agave syrup, you can substitute with pure maple syrup or organic cane sugar as a syrup (sugar + water boiled over the stove top).
