Blackberry Thyme Mocktail
A Blackberry Thyme Mocktail is a refreshing alcohol free beverage that has a delicious combination of fresh blackberries and fresh thyme. Easy to make and perfect to make and share with friends.
- 1/3 cup fresh blackberries
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup cane sugar
- 3 sprigs of thyme
- club soda
- extra blackberries and thyme for garnish
In a small saucepan or skillet over medium heat, mix the 1/3 cup fresh blackberries, 1/3 cup water, 1 sprig of thyme, 1/3 cup cane sugar and bring to a boil. Gently mash the fresh blackberries in the pan once they have had time to soften.
Adjust the heat to low and allow the syrup to simmer for 10 minutes. Once the mixture has had time to thicken a little, strain into a glass jar, and allow the blackberry syrup to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Using two glasses, pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of blackberry syrup in the bottom (depending on desired level of sweetness), add the ice, top with club soda, and serve with a sprig of thyme in each glass, and fresh blackberries. Stir before serving.
Use the leftover syrup to freshen up the two drinks for two more servings or store in a jar with a lid in the refrigerator up to 10 days.
- The recipe makes enough for 4 medium mocktails or 2 large mocktails.
- Feel free to substitute the club soda for flavored sparkling water.
- If you prefer an alcohol version, add a shot of vodka to each serving.
