3 Saint Patrick’s Day Mocktails

3 Saint Patrick I think our holiday mocktail tradition is going to stick around. I definitely don’t mind having to make and try out a bunch of these tasty drinks! Here are a few green mocktails that you can toast to St. Patrick’s Day with!
Pear & Thyme Spritzer @themerrythought Pear & Thyme Spritzer
2 tbsp pear puree
1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp orange dry
1 tsp thyme simple syrup (see instructions below)
Crushed ice
Sparkling mineral water

To make the thyme syrup, combine 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 6 sprigs of thyme in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, or until sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let infuse for 10 minutes. Strain out thyme and transfer liquid into a jar and let it cool completely.

Combine pear puree, lemon juice, orange dry, and thyme syrup in glass and stir them together. Fill the glass 3/4 full with crushed ice and top off with sparkling mineral water. Garnish with thyme sprig and pear wedge.

*You can get a greener drink based on the color of the skin on the pear.
