Lavender & Earl Grey Mocktail

This recipe was originally written in September of 2014. I found it in an old blog archive and wanted to share because it’s still a favorite of mine. I’ve been sober for nearly 5 years now and having a nice mocktail at a gathering is a great feeling. Also, this one is super special because it’s one of the drinks we had on offer at our wedding in 2013! Hope you all enjoy it!

Recently I whipped up one of my favorite homemade drinks, lavender + earl grey soda. I don't drink alcohol much but I still enjoy something fun to drink at a gathering and this is my go to. This one is great for hosting parties because one drink can satisfy both your n/a friends and those enjoying alcohol with one simple substitution.


 LAVENDER + EARL GREY MOCKTAIL

Lavender Simple Syrup

1/4 c organic lavender buds
1/4 c coconut palm sugar
1/4 c water

Heat the water to a boil and combine with sugar. Stir until combined. Let cool and add lavender buds. Allow the lavender to infuse for 48 hours. Strain into a ball jar.

Earl Grey Simple Syrup

1 TBSP earl grey tea
1/4 c coconut palm sugar
1/4 water

Heat the water to a boil and combine with sugar. Stir until combined. To infuse there are 2 options: place the tea into a tea ball and place into hot simple syrup for 4 minutes, or let syrup cool and infuse tea for 48 hours.

Mocktail/Cocktail

Wet the rim of a glass with water & dip into coconut palm sugar. Combine 2 TBSP lavender syrup with 1 TBSP earl grey syrup. Top with soda water or champagne. Garnish with lavender flowers.
