Holiday Hydration: Mocktails!

HydroSkin Care Mocktails

Hydrate from the inside this Holiday Season with these easy, delicious mocktail ideas. Here’s some of our favourite flavours - get cleaver, creative and enjoy the festivities!

If you’re looking for that extra-festive kick, mix it up by adding vodka or your favourite liquor.

Simple Syrups

When making these drinks we realised how awesome and tasty simple syrups are! Each drink has a unique blend of syrups - one is a honey simple syrup and the others are made with light agave nectar. The natural sweetener is sourced in Mexico and Central America from the blue agave succulent plant and makes the simple syrup sweet without using sugar!

Tip: Make your simple syrup(s) first and allow them to cool completely.  They will store well if refrigerated, ready for the next use!

Ginger with agave
Mix argue and water in equal parts.
Cut ginger into thin pieces. Bring the agave and water to boil over medium heat. Add the ginger and bring the mixture to a simmer.  Remove from heat and allow to steep for 30+ minutes. Strain syrup, discard ginger.

Mint with agave
Mix agave and water in equal parts.
Bring the agave and water to boil over medium heat. Add the mint and bring the mixture to a simmer.  Remove from heat and allow too steep for 30+ minutes. Strain syrup, discard mint.

Honey
Add 4 parts honey to 1 part water.
Heat in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the mixture reaches a simmer. Remove from heat and cool.
