It’s More Than A Lavender Mocktail

We are told to find the beauty in every day life and this Sparkling Lavender Mocktail achieves that. It’s sweet, floral, bubbly, and delicate with every sip. You’ll love how…

  • It’s a sophisticated mocktail. We are moving into our “better mocktails” ear. The lavender bitters and alcohol removed sparkling rosé makes this mocktail more than just juices mixed together.
  • Made for celebrating every occasion. Whether you bought a new home, are celebrating a bridal shower or baby shower, are having brunch with the girls, or made it through a tough week, this mocktail will celebrate with you.

What Makes This Mocktail Sparkling?

A sparkling mocktail just means that it is carbonated. This recipe gets its bubbles from Rosé (row·zay), not rosé the flower but the sparkling champagne.

Sparkling rosé is a type of non alcoholic champagne that gets it’s pink color from red grapes. It is on the sweet side of champagnes and is the perfect bubbly addition to lavender.

For more bubbly sparkling mocktails, try my favorite Aperol Spritz Mocktail, a classic Mimosa Mocktail, or this Sangria Mocktail with apple cider.

Sparkling Lavender Mocktail Ingredients

This 5 ingredient mocktail is bursting with sweet lavender flavor. Keep reading for notes on each ingredient and potential substitutions.

  • Non Alcoholic Lavender Bitters: Nothing beats All The Bitter! Their lavender bitters are made in small batches and perfectly balanced. Use code ENTIRELY10 for 10% off (not sponsored) or buy them on Amazon.
  • Lemon: We will use lemon juice in the mocktail and lemon slices as a garnish. I do not recommend swapping it out for bottled lemon juice, it makes the mocktail taste overly bitter.
  • Honey: Local honey is the best honey you can use. Don’t have honey? No problem, use simple syrup, maple syrup, or light agave syrup.
  • Non Alcoholic Sparkling Rosé: I used Fre by Sutter Homes for this recipe. Keep scrolling to read my honest review about Fre and 2 other brands.
  • Club Soda: This balances the sweet while lifting the lavender flavor and it is an absolute must. You can use tonic water in it’s place.

Bar Equipment Needed

  • Glassware: I chose dainty coupe glasses but champagne glasses, wine glasses, or your favorite will work just fine.
  • Cocktail Shaker: I like using my mini cocktail shaker for this recipe because it’s a low volume mocktail. You can use a glass jar or other lidded container if you don’t have a shaker bottle.
  • Citrus Juicer: A handheld juicer makes juicing the lemon so much easier, and you don’t get pulp in your mocktail. Feel free to squeeze your lemon by hand too.
Ingredients. Non alcoholic lavender bitter, sparkling rose champagne, club soda, lemon juice, honey, and a lemon slice.

Sparkling Rosé Reviews

Believe it or not, but there are so many delicious alcohol removed sparkling rosés on the market! I have tried almost 10 different brands and all of them were unique and delicious, which I rarely say when reviewing non alcoholic spirits.

Sparkling rosé comes in a 750ml bottle or single serve cans/ bottles. I will be reviewing 3 of my personal favorite single serve options:

  1. Fre Sparkling Rosé comes in aluminum cans and it’s produced by Sutter Home Wines, so it’s the easiest to find at local grocery stores. The flavor comes from sweet red grapes, it’s light, and tastes the most like rosé.
  2. Gruvi Bubbly Rosé comes in glass bottles. It tastes like strawberry with a slightly tart note. It is not as sweet as the others but still delicious.
  3. Free AF Sparkling Rosé comes in aluminum cans and is the lowest in calories (50 per can). It has no artificial sweeteners and is sweetened by a combination of grape and cranberry.

Please keep in mind my taste preference will vary from yours. You may have to try different brands to find the perfect one for you.

The Whole Bottle Versus Single Serve

There are pros and cons to buying a whole bottle of sparkling rosé versus single serve cans/ bottles. I like to solve this by asking myself, how many Sparkling Lavender Mocktails am I making today?

If you’re answer is 1 to 8, I recommend buying single serve cans/bottles (my favorite brands in previous section).

  • PROS: makes 3 or 4 cocktails per can/bottle,
  • CONS: They are more expensive, there are fewer brands that make cans/ bottles, you cannot “pop” the cork because they don’t have a cork.

If you’re answer is 9 or more, buy a 750ml bottle. I like using Fre, Joyous, or Noughty.

  • PROS: A bottle is less expensive, there are more brands that make a 750ml bottle, makes up to 12 mocktail, and you get to “pop” the cork.
  • CONS: Loses its carbonation if not used the same day.

Fun Ways to Make This Mocktail Your Own

SWAP THE SPARKLING ROSÉ. The lavender, lemon, and honey flavor profile goes great with a lot of other zero proof spirits. I recommend trying it with your favorite non alcoholic gin, champagne, tequila, or even vodka.

DECORATE THE RIM WITH LAVENDER BUDS. There is nothing better than an aesthetic mocktail with a pretty rim, and it’s easy to do too. Simply roll the rim of your glass in honey and then in the lavender buds. Please note, the lavender is an aromatic touch and not meant to be eaten.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What does non alcoholic lavender bitters taste like?

The lavender bitters from All The Bitter is light, sweet, floral, with a slight honey taste. There is a distinct lavender flavor without it being overwhelming. I like using them in my mocktails, mineral water, lemonade, and even tea!

Can I substitute lavender bitters for lavender simple syrup in this mocktail?

Yes you can use lavender simple syrup in place of the lavender bitters. It is worth noting, simple syrup is very sweet in comparison to bitters. You may need to add more lemon juice or club soda to balance out the added sweetness.

Where do I buy zero proof spirits?

You can check your local grocery stores, some have a non alcoholic section while others have the spirits mixed in with the alcoholic stuff. I have found them at Meijer’s, Target, CVS Drug Stores, and even my local liquor stores. You can also buy them at online bottle shops or Amazon.

  • DECORATE THE RIM OF YOUR GLASS WITH LAVENDER BUDS. Simply roll the rim of your glass in honey and then in the lavender buds. 
  • SUBSTITUTE LAVENDER BITTERS FOR LAVENDER SYRUP. If you do this you will want to substitute the honey for lavender syrup and omit the lavender bitters. If the mocktail is still too sweet, add more lemon juice or club soda.
