Absolutely! Simply make your mocktail mixture in a pitcher the day before, cover it tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. The best part about making these ahead of time is that they'll be completely chilled once ready to serve. Also, the ice cubes will be made in advance and ready to add to your assembled mocktails!
This recipe makes two mocktails. To make additional mocktails, simply double or triple ingredients, depending on need.
Of course! If you’d like to serve this as a cocktail, you can add your favorite alcohol to the mixture. The best types of alcohols (just about 1 ounce or so) that work great with this Citrus Honey Mint flavor combo is:

One of the greatest phenomenons when it comes to ice cubes has been seeing super clear ice cubes from those clear ice cube systems or molds and wanting to try it, but not necessarily wanting to have a huge contraption in my freezer. Haha. Anyone else feel my pain? Whelp, no need to worry----I've done my research and tested it out a bit and have found some solutions to help those of us who don't have any fancy system to making clear ice cubes. Here are a few ways:
Tip #1: It's best to use water that is distilled or super filtered to avoid gasses and dissolved oxygen, which are the two things that cause our ice to "fog up" when frozen.
Tip #2: Boil your water and freeze your water hot. Again, much to my previous point, this removes any dissolved oxygen or gasses. Just be sure to carefully pour the hot water into your ice cube tray or mold-----preferably one made from materials that naturally insulates like silicone. Also, ensure that your tray lays FLAT while freezing.
Tip #3: Slow freeze your ice cubes. This should be done for about 24 hours, which allows any impurities to be forced out of the ice---resulting in much clearer ice.
This Citrus Honey Mint Mocktail drink is amazing, ya'll. I've made it a mission to build my summer mocktail menu on Orchids + Sweet Tea, and since my drinks never contain alcohol, it's been a bit intimidating. Haha.
There are just so many other alcoholic drinks all over the internet that I've wondered whether you would care about a silly ole' mocktail, but you guys have been loving them, especially my latest Mango Lemonade Kombucha Mocktail and this Coconut Mojito Mocktail with Green Tea
If you're into the Honey flavor of things, then this Fancy Hot Honey Lemon Mocktail is definitely the way to go as well.
Mocktails can be healthy, depending on the ingredients used. Fresh juices, herbal teas, and natural sweeteners like honey can provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. However, mocktails made with high-calorie syrups, sodas, and artificial flavors can be less healthy. Y'all know my mocktail menu for Orchirds & Sweet Tea I like to keep it natural and healthy. Ok, most of the time... Exceptions like this Southern Strawberry Iced Sweet Tea have a little sugar.
