Description

This was born of a need to use up the ageing strawberries in the fridge, plus whatever was growing in the garden.  Found a recipe at https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/strawberry-basil-mocktail/ and adapted it in the laziest possible manner.

Delightfully refreshing, the lemon, sugar, strawberry and basil all work together well, especially when well-chilled after shaking.

Description

Others have liked this, but maybe I was a little heavy handed with the vanilla. A poor second to the honey blackberry mint mocktail.  This recipe was based on https://www.lafujimama.com/blackberry-vanilla-mocktail/, with its beautiful imagery.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup fresh blackberries
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • Soda water

Instructions

  • Muddle the blackberries, lemon juice, vanilla and honey, in the bottom of a glass
  • Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer, and again through a coffee filter until clear
  • Pour over ice, and fill glass with soda water
  • Garnish with fresh blackberries and mint leaves

It really depends on the ingredients. I think this vanilla extract was quite strong, compared to the standard vanilla essence, and I put a bit too much in, overpowering everything else.

Persevered and made it, but somehow it wasn’t quite there.
Check out the honey blackberry mint mocktail instead.

  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 15ml lime juice

  • Squeeze a half lime and add 15ml to glass

This is not a relaxing drink. It’s a wake-me-up and fight-or-flight kind of drink. It redefines tart.

I tried different combinations of this, doubling the V to 60ml, leaving the lemon and lime the same. It’s less in-your-face, and probably the way to go, but is a little let down once you’ve tried the initial combination.

This would be “interesting” as the first lets-get-the-party-going drink on taco night, but you’d want to limit yourself to just one…
