3 Farmers Market-Inspired Mocktail Recipes to Celebrate Summer

Whether you’re abstaining from alcohol, you’ve finally hopped on the paleo bandwagon, or you simply want something special to sip with the family, a mocktail is the perfect way to cool down this summer without any alcohol. 

There are plenty of mocktail recipes around calling for fun and fancy ingredients like ginger syrup, smoked salt, or blood orange bitters. But don’t fret if you don’t have a fully stocked bar. The mockatail recipes below are pretty simple and call for just a few seasonal ingredients you can find at your local farmers market. And when you’re working with fresh, seasonal fruit you really only need to add a little sweetener (if any), so these are pretty healthy, too. Cheers to that!

Blackberry Lemon Switchel
Serves 4
The switchel has been around for hundreds of years, but has made a comeback as a hipster favorite recently. This sweet and tangy beverage is very refreshing and has naturally-occurring electrolytes and probiotic properties. If you like kombucha, you'll love this!
