I’m sure if you’re anywhere between 25 and 35, many of your friends or family members are trying to get pregnant, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. And anytime there’s a party, they are usually drinking something boring and store-bought or jealously giving some serious side-eye glares.

Outside of pregnancy though, there are plenty of people who, for either religious or health reasons, choose not to partake. I myself go through periods where consuming alcohol would be detrimental to my health.

Whatever the reason, it always feels nice to be included, and not as an after-thought. This Vanilla Earl Grey Blackberry Mocktail has just as much thought, effort, and recipe development as a cocktail and you can taste it.

Mocktail Tips

The biggest piece advice for making a good mocktail is to treat it like you’re making a cocktail. This basically means to give it the same attention you would a cocktail.

  • Measure: I think accurate measuring is even more important for mocktails. With cocktails, there is always the personal preference for adding more or less alcohol but a mocktail’s flavor profile is easier to mess up without the alcohol.
  • Shake, stir, pour, and garnish: use the same equipment and garnishes you would use for a cocktail
  • Pay attention to aroma and temperature
  • Balance flavor profiles (sweet, sour, bitter, umami, salty, astringent, etc.)

If you utilize these tips, you’ll be able to make stellar mocktails that make you feel a part of the party.

Servings 1
Prep Time 8 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Earl Grey tea leaves
  • 2 ounces hot water
  • 1 orange slice large
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Sugar*
  • 1 ounce Blackberry Shrub with Vanilla and Earl Grey*
  • Soda water to top or to taste I used Fever-Tree Club Soda

Instructions

  • Brew the tea and set aside.*
  • Place some ice in a rocks glass or similar sized glass.
  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange slice and sugar together until the sugar is mostly dissolved and the orange has been flattened and released its juices.
  • Add the tea and shrub and top with ice.
  • Shake well, until the shaker is very cold and is sweating.
  • Strain into the prepared glass, top with club soda and garnish. You can garnish with an orange wedge or slice and edible flowers if desired.

Notes

For black tea, brew 2 to 3 minutes. You can also use 2 ounces of pre-brewed Earl Grey tea. If you’re using pre-brewed tea, make sure it’s double strength (double the amount of tea bags or tea leaves for the same amount of water you would use to brew hot tea).
