Lavender Mocktail {and a Hot Mama Cocktails Intro}

I’ve been making a lot of yummy beverages with my new lavender simple syrup. Even though I’m typically going to be using it in my home bar crafted cocktails, I knew I wanted to make some sort of Lavender Mocktail with it, too.

A non-alcoholic beverage made with lemon juice, lavender simple syrup, cranberry juice & ginger ale.About 10 years ago before I knew that “mocktails” were an actual thing (and trending), I came up with what I called “Hot Mama Cocktails.” I had 2 friends unexpectedly become pregnant at the time. We were a group of friends who went out to bars a lot, for karaoke or a game of pool. Although we were all very excited to have some cute babies in our group, it was definitely going to be a pretty swift adjustment to some lifestyle habits.

In an effort to ease that transition, I made up a whole little menu of mocktails (Hot Mama Cocktails) that my expecting friends could choose from when they came to my house for some hangout time. It was such a hit that everyone else started asking me for the alcoholic versions of the stuff on the mocktail menu. I even started setting up Hot Mama Cocktail bars at my friends’ baby showers (also a huge hit)!

Pregnancy isn’t the only time that mocktails come in handy (although that’s when I’ve enjoyed them most). Designated drivers can enjoy them, people with certain health concerns, or those following a specific meal plan that excludes alcohol, etc. Whatever the reason, most of those close to me know that when they come to my house, I can whip up a variety of great mocktails for them if they so please. Now I can add a Lavender Mocktail to the list!
