I’m starting my drink series a little early this year thanks to Mocktails. I recently had the opportunity to try out four of their mocktails, and today I’m sharing about the first one, the Scottish Lemonade Mockscow Mule. This refreshing mocktail is made with Sicilian and Argentinian lemons and provides just the right about of citrus flavor without being overwhelming and the ginger adds a nice little kick to the flavor profile.
I wanted to keep the citrus element going with this Blueberry Lemon Smash, so read on to see just what additions I made to this already delicious mocktail.
Freshly made ice cubes are always a must when it comes to my drinks. I’ve found the best collection of shapes from these small ice cubes to honeycomb, large square trays for ‘on the rocks’, and a round sphere ice cube tray that really adds a little something special to your drinks.
Want to level up your ice cube game? Infuse them with mint, and citrus, or even create ice cubes with the main beverage in your mocktail to prevent your drink from watering down if you prefer to slowly savor your drink.
I picked up this Meyer Lemon honey that’s made in Brooklyn, NYC from our local Crate & Barrel. It comes in this easy-to-dispense bottle and it adds a hint of citrusy sweetness to drinks, baked goods, vinaigrettes, and also quite delicious on a slice of cheese.
While you could go with several different berry options for this drink (i.e. sliced strawberries, muddled blackberries) I chose to go with fresh blueberries. They were just the right combination of sweet and tart.
