Equipment

  • Small pan
  • Sieve
  • Wooden spoon

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups blueberries
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 3-4 fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ cup still water
  • sparkling water to serve
  • ice cubes to serve
  • frozen berries optional, to garnish

Instructions

  • Add the blueberries, mint, honey and still water to a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a very light simmer and stir to combine. Cook for 15 minutes, pressing any stubborn blueberries that aren't bursting against the side of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the blueberry syrup through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl or jug (a jug is easier for pouring into your glasses!). Press the syrup through the sieve with a wooden spoon and discard the blueberry skins and mint leaves that are left in the sieve. Set aside the syrup to cool (about 20 minutes).
  • Pour approximately ½ inch of the blueberry syrup into your glasses and add in ice cubes. Top with sparkling water, and garnish with frozen berries and fresh mint leaves.

Notes

  • For a stronger blueberry mocktail pour more of the syrup into your glasses.
  • Use a wooden spoon to both help the blueberries along to burst in the pan, and also to press through the sieve.
