Taylor Swift “Labyrinth” Mocktail Ingredients
The best thing about this mocktail is it’s simplicity. Each individual drink is made with only three ingredients! Your grocery list is outlined below.
- Blueberry Simple Syrup: Blueberry simple syrup is just simple syrup that has been infused with blueberries. It is incredibly easy to make and you can store it in the fridge for up to 1 month.
- Pineapple Juice: Any pineapple juice will do here. I would recommend looking out for a brand that makes 100% juice with no additives but it’s not a big deal if it’s sweetened. You can even purchase the kind that comes in a can if you choose.
- Sparkling Water: Any unsweetened sparkling or soda water will do here. I used plain but you could use flavored if you like. Just try to choose a flavor that will compliment the blueberry and pineapple.
Blueberry Simple Syrup Ingredients
- Frozen Blueberries: I choose to use frozen blueberries here due to the expense of fresh berries but either will work fine.
- Sugar: Regular, granulated sugar works best here. I would advise you not to get crafty and attempt to substitute another sweetener. Granulated sugar dissolves well and doesn’t leave any kind of weird aftertaste.
Tips for Making Taylor Swift “Labyrinth” Mocktails
- Make the Blueberry Simple Syrup in advance! It’s so easy to whip up and it can be stored in a tightly sealed container or jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 month! Scale your batch as needed if you want to have leftovers.
- Like with most cocktails/mocktails, garnishes are everything. To keep the ethereal vibe you can decorate with flowers (remove before drinking!) or you can use fruit. I like to do pineapple wedges or blueberries that I’ve stuck on a toothpick or reusable spit.
- While this mocktail does not need ice, use cool-looking ice cubes if you choose to serve it over ice. There is something so fun about beautiful-looking ice cubes and the trays sold on Amazon are pretty cheap. If you don’t have one of these trays you can always use crushed ice.
How to Serve Taylor Swift “Labyrinth” Mocktails
While making a whole pitcher of something can be super convenient when you are entertaining guests, it won’t work very well here. Right after assembly is when these mocktails taste best.
To make things as easy as possible I would recommend having your simple syrup ready to go and fixing your drinks one at a time as you are ready to serve. I promise the extra step will be worth it. After all, there are only three ingredients and no cocktail shaker is necessary here!Print
