Before putting together your mocktail, let’s make the specialty Juniper Syrup. This is one of my favorite flavored simple syrups and it’s pretty easy to DIY.
Start by adding all the ingredients (sugar, water, and crushed dried juniper berries) to a small saucepan over medium heat and bringing the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes over low heat. Remove from heat and all the mixture to cool. Use a fine-mesh strainer to strain the liquid into a jar, discarding berries. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This syrup can last for a few weeks and you can use it for other mocktails (or cocktails).
Now, it’s time to make the Strawberry Southside Fizz Mocktail! Start by adding the strawberry, mint leaves, and juniper syrup to a glass and gently muddle. This will infuse the ingredients together and release all the fresh flavors adding depth to this mocktail.
Next, add the fresh lime and lemon juice and stir it all together using a bar spoon. Complete this mocktail by filling a glass with crushed ice and topping it with citrus sparkling water. Garnish with strawberry, mint, and an edible flower. Stir before enjoying.
