Sorrel Tonic Mojito Infused Water
With Spring just around the corner, I am thinking it’s a good idea to get myself geared up for warmer weather. And nothing makes me feel like warmer weather than sipping on a delicious and refreshing drink. I created the Sorrel Tonic Refresher Mocktail with everybody in mind. By that, I mean this delightfully yummy drink is alcohol-free but it has the feel and taste of a light and refreshing cocktail. The foundation of this spritely sipper is the homemade sorrel infused simple syrup I prepared in short order and with a few ingredients. You will also find the fizz of tonic water, thin planks of cucumbers, and fresh pineapple in this tall liquid beauty. In the end, all of the ingredients come together to make this Sorrel Tonic Refresher Mocktail a certified hit!
The homemade sorrel infused simple syrup is where the magic for this mocktail begins and here are the ingredients:
How to make Sorrel Infused Simple Syrup
- 1 cup alkaline water
- 1 cup raw sugar
- 5-6 sorrel leaves, rinsed in warm water and torn apart
- 1/2 tbsp whole cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- zest from a navel orange
Into a small stockpot over med/high heat add a single cup of alkaline water with one cup of raw sugar. Add several washed sorrel leaves torn into pieces, a couple of wedges of fresh-cut pineapple, whole cloves, cinnamon sticks, and orange zest. Bring the mixture to a roiling boil for two minutes then remove the pot from direct heat. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid, allow the mixture to steep overnight for best results. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a Mason jar, screw on the lid and cool in the fridge until the Sorrel Infused Simple Syrup is thoroughly chilled. Use as needed. Store in the fridge for up to 30-days.
Add one or two tablespoons of the Sorrel Infused Simple Syrup into a glass over ice.
Next, top the mocktail off with your favorite tonic water. Using a long-handled bar-spoon give the mocktail few turns. Garnish wiht slices of fresh cucumber and thin slabs of pineapple.
Light, low-cal, and rejuvenating, that’s our Sorrel Tonic Refresher Mocktail!
