This Blueberry Lavender Chamomile Mocktail is perfectly balanced between earthy tea and bright, sweet fruit. It's a delicious and kid-friendly alcohol-free drink for any time.
This is my latest favorite mocktail recipe, made with brewed mellow tea and sweet blueberry syrup. You won't miss the booze in this flavorful and satisfying drink.
How to Make Chamomile Mocktails
The first step in this tea-infused mocktail is to make the chamomile lavender tea. Simply brew your favorite chamomile tea for a few minutes in hot water. Then place the tea in the fridge to cool completely.
To complete the mocktails, you'll need:
Blueberry juice. My favorite is the 100% blueberry juice from RW Knudsen.
Agave syrup. You could also use honey or maple syrup if you prefer.
Lemon juice. Freshly squeezed is best.
Making the Mocktails
Next, when your tea is fully cooled, assemble the chamomile mocktails.
Start by muddling together the chamomile tea, blueberry juice, sweetener and lemon juice until combined.
Then pour over glasses of ice, add your favorite garnishes, and enjoy!
Garnishes for Chamomile Mocktails
I'm all about big, edible garnishes in my mocktails. Here's what I like to add to glasses:
Fresh blueberries. If you prefer a different fruit, try raspberries or sliced strawberries.
Sliced lemons. Fresh orange wedges would also be great.
Rosemary sprigs. You could also use mint or basil for an herby touch.
Can I serve the Mocktails Hot?
Certainly! If you prefer a warm tea mocktail, simply skip cooling the tea. Combine everything in the saucepan, and divide between mugs to serve.
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water and bring to a boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove the water from heat and add the tea bags and let them steep for 5-6 minutes. Once fully steeped, remove tea bags and let cool completely.
TO MAKE THE MOCKTAILS:
In a bowl, add the blueberry juice, chamomile lavender tea, Agave and lemon juice, stirring together until combined.
ASSEMBLY: Add crushed ice to glass(es), Add the mocktail mixture until ¾ filled followed by fresh blueberries and lemon wedges. For additional garnish, add fresh rosemary sprigs, if desired. 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 (add to boiled chamomile lavender tea over the stove top).
