This Hot Honey Peach Margarita Mocktail recipe is dropping just in time for the start of peach season and I am SO EXCITED to share it with y'all. I love a good Margarita, but sometimes you just crave a little extra oomph, you feel me? So when I whipped up this recipe, I decided to add hot honey to give it that extra kick—and boy, did it deliver!

I'm all about fresh peaches + peach recipes , but since it's not quite peach season here in NYC, I went for peach juice instead of fresh ones (but if you've got fresh peaches, go for it and make your own juice!). And because I can't resist being a little extra, I threw in a peach popsicle to take this mocktail to the next level—it's hands-on and fun!

If you're as crazy about peaches as me, you've got to try my Cinnamon Maple Peach Bread, Easy Summer Peach Apple Galette, and My Favorite Peach Crumble Pie. And for more refreshing drinks, give our Southern Peach Iced Tea and Brown Sugar Peach Mint Julep Mocktail a go!

What is A Mocktail?

So if you're sitting here thinking, what is a mocktail? Let me explain. A mocktail is like a party in a glass, minus the hangover. It's a delicious and refreshing non-alcoholic drink that's packed with all the flavor and complexity of a traditional cocktail but without any of alcohol.

Whether you're a designated driver, a health-conscious human, or just someone who wants to enjoy a delicious drink without the buzz, mocktails are the perfect solution.

How To Make Hot Honey Peach Margarita Mocktails

In a cocktail shaker, add the peach juice, freshly-squeezed lime juice and hot honey, shaking it together until combined. NOTE: You can also whisk everything together in a bowl if it's easier.

Then add the crushed ice cubes to glass(es), Add the mocktail mixture until ½ filled followed by the lime-lemon soda or bubbly of your choice until ¾ filled. For additional garnish, add popsicle, lime wedges, and/or fresh mint leave sprigs, if desired.

Ingredients

MOCKTAIL:

  • Peach juice. I used store brought but feel free to make your own peach juice if you prefer.
  • Hot honey. I like using Mike's Hot Honey --- Adjust based on sweet/heat preference!.
  • Lime. Freshly-squeezed.

  • Peach-flavored popsicles. Optional topping. You can also make your own with peach juice!

How to Make Clear Ice Cubes Without A Clear Ice Cube Mold

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.

Hot Honey Peach Margarita Mocktails Q + A's

Absolutely! To make additional mocktails, simply double or triple ingredients, depending on need.

Yes, you can adjust the level of heat by increasing or decreasing the amount of hot honey syrup you use.

For a kid-friendly version, simply omit the hot honey for regular honey and adjust the sweetness of the mocktails to suit their taste.
