Ingredients You Need

I often find mocktail recipes disappointing, especially when most are just glorified fruit juice loaded with sugar. This is not a problem with my keto mocktail recipe. All you need are the following:

  • Hot water
  • Sparkling mineral water: This is what makes for a nice fizz and any brand will do.
  • Hibiscus mint tea: Choose Pique’s Organic Hibiscus Mint Tea Crystals for the best quality strong brewed, organic tea. Made from high-quality tea leaves flavored with Egyptian hibiscus and mint, and naturally sweetened with stevia leaf. Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s hot and cold water soluble.

I love experimenting with mocktails because they allow me to get creative with non-alcoholic drinks that taste and look just as great as a classic margarita (minus the heavy carbs!). Below are some ideas you can try with my keto mocktail recipe:

  • Use various Pique Teas for the ice cubes, such as the Peach Ginger and Passionfruit Green tea crystals. If you don’t have access to this type of tea, you can use whatever you have on hand.
  • Instead of Pique tea, steep hibiscus tea bags or dried hibiscus flowers, then mix with fresh mint leaves and a few drops of homemade liquid stevia, monkfruit sweetener, or any of your preferred keto-friendly sweeteners to make flavored ice cubes.
  • Replace sparkling water with unflavored seltzer or soda water.
  • Make it an adult-friendly drink by spiking it with actual alcohol (just about an ounce or so), such as rosé wine, vodka, gin, champagne, tequila, whiskey, or white rum (to make a keto-friendly mojito).
  • For a citrusy twist, use lemon soda with freshly squeezed orange juice, lemon juice, or lime juice, and then garnish with lime wedge or orange peels. Or, rim the glass with lime zest for an extra tropical touch.
  • Serve with lime wheel, rosemary sprigs, or basil in each glass.
  • Lightly drizzle with a simple syrup or your favorite sugar-free syrup for a touch of sweetness.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Made in just 5 minutes using 2 ingredients, this keto mocktail will make you feel like you’ve been transported to the tropics. It’s best enjoyed at the peak of summer, helping you stay cool and comfy while providing a bit of pizzazz to the day. Let’s get started!

  1. Make the tea. Brew two sachets of hibiscus mint tea in hot water and blend until fully dissolved.
  2. Make flavored cubes. Allow the tea to cool completely, then pour into ice cube trays and set in the freezer. Once solid, remove a few ice cubes from the tray and add to a drinking glass. Top with sparkling water and serve.

Expert Tips

  • Taste as you go. If you want your hibiscus mint spritz to be sweeter, add stevia or any sugar substitute you have. Keep it keto-friendly by starting with a small amount, then adjust to taste.
  • Prep in advance. To make an easy batch of keto mocktails, make your flavored ice cubes ahead of time and chill your sparkling water until you’re ready to serve. This will save you a lot of time when making multiple drinks at a gathering.

How to Store This Recipe

Hibiscus mint keto mocktail (or any other mocktail, for that matter) is best enjoyed fresh and cold. It’s very easy to make the flavored ice cubes ahead of time (and in bulk) and keep them in the freezer for when they’re needed.

Once ready to enjoy, simply fill your cubes with chilled sparkling water. Add fresh mint leaves or your favorite garnish for enhanced aroma and presentation.

What to Serve with Hibiscus Mint Spritzer

My keto mocktail recipe is the perfect afternoon refreshment, but it can also be enjoyed as a pre-dinner drink or evening wind-down. Consider pairing it with light, refreshing snacks or appetizers, such as the following:

  • Smoked wild salmon stuffed with cream cheese and fresh herbs.
  • A platter of fruits like fresh raspberries, blackberries, and strawberry slices.
  • Creamy and savory cheeses like cheddar, goat cheese, and brie.
  • A crudité platter of sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and bell pepper strips dipped in ranch dressing or tzatziki sauce.
  • A bowl of marinated olives seasoned with herbs and lemon zest.
  • Toasted slices of keto bread, focaccia bread, or crackers with diced tomatoes, basil, and a drizzle of olive oil.
