YIELD: Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

 

For Honey Berry Syrup:

1/2 cup - Weeks Raw Orange Blossom Honey

1/2 cup - filtered cold water

2 cups - 100% orange juice

1/4 cup - fresh ginger root, peeled and minced

2 cups - fresh stawberries, thinly sliced

3 cups - sparkling water, chilled

 

For Garnish:

4 - fresh orange slices

1 cup - fresh strawberries, thinly sliced

4 - large fresh mint sprigs

 

DIRECTIONS

For Honey Berry Syrup: Place blueberry honey, filtered water, orange juice, ginger root and 2 cups sliced strawberries in a small saucepot. Bring to a gentle boil then reduce to a simmer. Let simmer approximately 5 minutes.

Remove saucepot from heat, then smash all the strawberries in the saucepot to a pulp, with a spoon, and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.

Once cooled, strain through a super fine mesh strainer or dampened cheesecloth into a bowl, using a spoon to push on the solids to extract as much of the liquid, color and flavor as possible. Place the honey berry syrup in the refrigerator to chill. Discard any solids in the strainer.

Pour equal amounts of the chilled honey berry syrup into each of the 4 serving glasses, and then pour 3/4 cup sparkling water into each glass. Add one orange slice, 1/4 cup sliced strawberries and one fresh mint sprig to each glass and stir. Top off each glass with ice cubes.

Serve and enjoy!

TIP

The honey berry syrup can be prepared a day in advance, to simplify prep.

Substitute fresh lime slices for garnish vs. orange slices.

Use a lime or citrus-flavored sparkling water vs. standard sparkling water.

You can easily turn this "mocktail" into a cocktail, by substituting champagne or prosecco for the sparkling water.

For extra fun, freeze edible flowers (like pansies) in the ice cubes, used in the drink.

Go fancy and add 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. of dried lavender to the honey berry syrup, in step 1.
