Lavender Blues Mocktail

Cynthia Berman of Farm Fresh Mocktails shares her beautiful spring mocktails inspired by fresh fruit and beautiful lavender hues. Each recipe features fresh ingredients and homemade syrups and is served in a pretty glass to elevate its status (as we believe all mocktails should be!) Cynthia’s aesthetic also includes gorgeous saturated color and, of course, fancy ice (see below). For more information, learn all about lavender in our article, Lavender Haze and try Cynthia's Bee Pleaser recipe too).

Blueberries and butterfly pea flower give this drink the blues while lemon gives it a little blush by making the pea flower more pink. The mint garnish provides an immediate aromatic freshness, followed by notes of juniper and then citrus. Blueberry sweetness and floral lavender sneak in at the end along with a crisp bubbly finish.

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Muddle blueberries in a shaker. 

  • Add gin, lavender butterfly pea flower syrup, lemon juice, and ice. Shake.

  • Add mint garnish and a lavender ice stick, optional.

Cynthia Recommends:

Free Spirits, The Spirit of Gin

The Spirit of Gin, a smooth, bright and floral non-alcoholic (less than 0.5% ABV) alternative to a dry Plymouth-style Gin, is made with all natural flavors and functional ingredients to awaken your taste buds, help elevate your mood and recharge your body. With the fresh nose of juniper, followed by notes of citrus, coriander and cardamom, The Spirit of Gin never fails to excite and refresh.

Butterfly pea flower ads a beautiful blue hue to any drink. When combined with citrus, like the lemon in the Lavender Blues Mocktail, the blueish-purple becomes a vibrant pink!  The syrup below can be used in this mocktail and saved for other beverages as well.

Fancy Ice!

Fancy ice­…Cynthia is all about it! The easiest way to up your ice game is to add some of the key ingredients from your mocktail recipe to your ice for a bit more flavor and visual interest.  Freezing garnishes into the ice makes it pretty and festive.  Cynthia particularly favors larger ice cubes which take longer to melt so drinks don’t get watered down as quickly.
