- 1 cup of mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
- Juice of two limes
- 2 tablespoons of honey (or to taste)
- 2 sprigs of rosemary
- Sparkling water (to top up)
- Ice cubes
- Extra berries and rosemary sprigs for garnish
- Muddle the berries: In a cocktail shaker, muddle together the mixed berries, lime juice, and honey. Press down with a muddler (or the back of a wooden spoon) until the berries are crushed and have released their juices.
- Add rosemary: Add a sprig of rosemary into the shaker. Give it a quick muddle to release the aromatic oils but be careful not to overdo it, as rosemary is strong.
- Shake it up: Add some ice cubes to the shaker, secure the lid, and give it a vigorous shake for about 15-20 seconds. This helps to chill the mixture and allows the flavors to meld together.
- Strain and serve: Strain the mocktail mixture into tall glasses filled with ice, making sure to divide it equally.
- Top up: Top each glass off with sparkling water, adjusting to your preference.
- Garnish: Garnish with a few more berries and a sprig of rosemary for that extra touch of elegance.
Enjoy this refreshing, sweet, and tangy drink that's perfect for any occasion! Remember, the key to a great mocktail is balancing the sweetness and acidity, so feel free to adjust the honey and lime juice to your liking. Cheers!
