With no added sugar, just the sweetness from hibiscus tea combined with bright lime, this is a sophisticated and attractive mocktail you’ll feel good about sipping. Bonus: Hibiscus is rich in antioxidants, so this mocktail is a health booster, too.

Strawberries and basil are both warm-weather flavors, so why not combine them in a delightful fizzy mocktail? This one has no refined sugar, and you can make it ahead, then just top it off with seltzer when you’re ready to serve it.

That lime-mint combo is classic for a reason. In this mojito mocktail recipe, there’s no added sugar (though you could stir in a little honey if you prefer it sweeter). This is the perfect way to use up some of the mint taking over your window herb garden.

The vibrant purple hue of this mocktail is irresistible, as is the aromatic basil undertone. This tart-sweet blackberry drink is perfect on a sunny afternoon, but also would be great to serve to friends at a dinner party. P.S. Along with being delicious, basil is fantastic for health, boosting immunity, cognition, heart health, and more.

We love spotting rhubarb at the farmer’s market – it’s one of the ways we know spring is really here. Chop and cook some with honey and basil, then strain, and you have a tart-sweet syrup with a complex flavor that makes a beautiful mocktail.
