Lemon Mint Mocktail – with Natalie Carmolli
We’ve gotten lots of requests for 0-Proof cocktails- otherwise known as “Mocktails”… I also realize that the term “Mocktail” is not necessarily perferred by Mixologists- because it doesn’t give the proper credit to their art- and I respect that- a Well Crafted 0-Proof or non-alcoholic Libation- takes as much talent and craftsmanship as any other type of concoction… at the same time- the term “Mocktail” is still widely used- so I will be helping- along the way – in the future by calling them 0-Proof Libations or Craft NWA (not with Alcohol) Flower Drinks… (If you have suggestions – send them in… J@uBloom.com – THANK YOU).
I grow a great deal of organic mint- and I love it as a cut flower/foliage in my Arrangements- but it’s also a wonderful additive to a Not With Alcohol Libation- pairing it with Lemon- will give us a wonderful fresh- thirst quenching- 0-Proof Crafted Flower Inspired Drink: the Lemon Mint Mocktail! Plus it looks great in these wonderful vintage Mid-Century Glasses that are adorned with Fabulous Foliage!
