Grapefruit Thyme Fizz
An easy sparkling grapefruit mocktail with thyme.
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp Stevia or sweetener/sugar of choice (see note 1)
- 1/2 cup thyme
- 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
- 1/3 cup soda water
To make the thyme syrup
In a small saucepan, combine water and sweetener/sugar of choice over medium heat. Stir until the sweetener/sugar is dissolved.
Add thyme and simmer on very low (barely bubbling) for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit it for at least half an hour, or up to 3 hours. Strain and cool.
To make the mocktail
Add 1 tablespoon thyme syrup and 1/2 cup grapefruit juice to a glass. Add lots of ice, top with soda water and stir gently. Garnish with extra thyme and serve.
You'll have enough thyme syrup for 4-5 mocktails!
Note 1: I used Stevia for this recipe and 1 tbsp was plenty as Stevia is so sweet. If you are using regular sugar, use a 1:1 ratio of sugar to water, so 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. If you use a different sugar replacement, check their recommendations on the pack.
