Strawberry & Elderflower Mocktail With Mint And Blackberries

super easy


Strawberries are my favourite fruit so this recipe Strawberry & Elderflower Mocktail With Mint And Blackberries has been on my mind for a while. I had hoped to share it on a nice warm sunny day but I could be waiting a while.. But hopefully it will bring a bit of sunshine to your day anyway!

To make this mocktail we’re first going to make strawberry & lemon syrup, which we then top up by elderflower tonic and fresh berries with mint. The blackberries are completely optional of course but I do like how they cut the sweetness of the strawberries a bit.

I used Fentimans Gently Sparkling Elderflower (not an ad) but you can use any other brand. The syrup will for up to two weeks in the fridge.



Adjust Servings
200g fresh Irish strawberries
2 lemons
200g demerara sugar
250ml water
1.5L Sparkling Elderflower / Elderflower tonic
Ice cubes or crushed ice
200g Berries to serve (a mix of strawberries, blackberries, ..)
10 twigs of fresh mint


Cut the greens off the strawberries and squeeze the lemons (remove pits)
Dice them in half and put them in a sauce pan.
Add the sugar and water and lemon juice.

Bring to a boil
Stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature before putting it in the fridge.

When you're ready to have the mocktails, take the syrup out of the fridge
You can either add the elderflower to the syrup and serve in in glasses along with fresh berries, mint and ice. Or you can add a bit of syrup to each glass, top with fresh berries, then the ice and finish with the elderflower.
If you're serving it to a large crowd, option 1 would be easier of course but if it's only for 1-4 people at a time the second option makes more sense.
