This strawberry mint mocktail is the perfect refreshing drink after a warm summer day! The raw honey takes the place of the processed sugar making this drink refined sugar free.
(PALEO | AIP | REFINED SUGAR FREE)
4 Simple Ingredients:
Honey- The honey takes the place of the sugar. It gives the drink a soothing taste. I have found that even regular mocktails I still feel “hungover” the next day due to the sugar rather than the alcohol itself. The honey takes care of that!
Mint- Fresh strawberries pair so nicely with mint. It gives any drink or dish a kick. I like mint because I find it to be so soothing for my stomach.
Filtered water & club soda- When you make the simple syrup, be sure to use filtered water. When you make the drink, mix it with club soda. DO not use tonic water. Tonic water is loaded with added sugar. The drink will be sweet enough with the syrup itself.
How to store the syrup:
I like to store all mocktail syrups in the fridge in an airtight mason jar for up to 2 weeks in the fridge! In this recipe you will have enough syrup to make approximately 8 drinks.
A large saucepan– This is needed to simmer the syrup.
