I love making family friendly drinks that are both beautiful and delicious. This rosemary and grapefruit honey mocktail are both of these things.
This spring, cool down with our tasty rosemary and grapefruit honey mocktail. The kids will enjoy it as much as the adults.
Our rosemary and grapefruit honey mocktail embodies all the flavors of spring. The grapefruit is both slightly sour and citrusy while the rosemary is herbal and fresh. Honey provides an earthy sweetness that makes you think of carefree days out in the sun.
I especially love how easy this drink is to prepare. I prepared it and had it in hand in less than 10 minutes. Yes, you read that right. That even includes making our yummy grapefruit and honey simple syrup.
The day I made these was a warm spring day and I wanted to have my something nice and cool for the kids and I to enjoy. I didn’t have high expectations for them enjoying like I knew I would. Surprisingly, the loved it! Although, they did ask if they could remove the “green stuff”.
These rosemary and grapefruit honey mocktails are great as a beautiful everyday beverage. They are also fabulous served up on your bar cart or table at your next party.
