Looks SO amazing! Can you recommend an alternative to sugar for the recipe? Would honey or agave work in the syrup?

Hi Andrew,
I’ve never tried it with honey or agave but I’m pretty sure it works just as good as sugar. One tip: the temperature of the honey water should not go beyond 40°C (104°F) to avoid overheating. Overheating honey for any period of time will reduce its quality by destroying its enzymes and loss the delicate flavor.
Have a beautiful summer with lots of delicious mocktails 🙂

If you wanted to add alcohol as an option, what would you suggest?

Hi Rebecca, vodka or gin taste really good in this recipe. Enjoy!
