Honeydew Lemongrass Fizz Mocktail

The Honeydew Lemongrass Fizz Mocktail is my new favorite summer bev! This delightful mocktail brings together the sweet juiciness of honeydew melon with the zesty and aromatic notes of lemongrass, all rounded out with a splash of sparkling water for that perfect fizz.

Homemade lemongrass simple syrup infuses the drink with a unique, vibrant flavor. Coupled with the refreshing taste of coconut water and the bright zing of freshly squeezed lime juice, the Honeydew Lemongrass Fizz Mocktail is a balanced, non-alcoholic treat that’s perfect for anybody!

Ingredients for the Honeydew Lemongrass Fizz Mocktail

  • Lemongrass: Fresh lemongrass stalk is the key to a vibrant, aromatic simple syrup. You can substitute with dried lemongrass if needed, but remember, the longer the infusion, the stronger the flavor.
  • Sugar: Standard granulated sugar works perfectly to balance the tanginess and provide the right sweetness.
  • Honeydew: Opt for ripe and juicy honeydew melon. You can dice or ball it, depending on your preference.
  • Mint Leaves: Fresh mint leaves add a cooling, refreshing element that complements the other ingredients.
  • Coconut Water: For its pure and fresh taste. I like Harmless Harvest.
  • Sparkling Water: Adds crips effervescence. I used Topo Chico.
  • Lime slices and edible flowers: Add lime slices and edible flowers for a pop of fresh color!

How to Make the Honeydew Lemongrass Fizz Mocktail

Creating this mocktail is so easy and fun!

First, by making the lemongrass simple syrup. Start by preparing the lemongrass stalk. Trim the bottom half inch and use a mallet or muddler to bruise it, which helps release its natural oils. Dice the lemongrass into small pieces.

In a heat-proof cup, combine the diced lemongrass, sugar, and boiling water. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let the mixture chill and infuse for at least 10 minutes on the counter or up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Once infused, strain the mixture into a jar, discarding the solids.

To craft the mocktail, add the diced honeydew and lemongrass syrup to a cocktail shaker and muddle until the honeydew is broken down. Add the smacked mint leaves, coconut water, lime juice, and ice. Shake the mixture until well chilled. Strain the contents into a cocktail glass filled with fresh ice and top with sparkling water. For an extra touch, garnish with a slice of lime and an edible flower before enjoying!
