apricot-mint fizz recipe

i can’t get enough apricots! ::::

Shhh! Quiet! No talking necessary. One: the baby is sleeping and I’m sleep deprived. Two: when you talk, you can’t drink. This is your summer refreshment. No thinking or talking needed.

apricot-mint fizz recipe
Recipe type: drink
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • 2 sprigs of fresh mint
  • sprinkle of sugar
  • ⅓ cup fresh apricot puree or apricot nectar
  • ¼ cup simple syrup (I like my fruit tart, so you may need to adjust this to your liking)*
  • 2 drops rosewater
  • seltzer to fill a 16 ounce (~480 ml = 2 cup) glass
  • ice
  1. Muddle one sprig of mint with sprinkle of sugar in 10 ounce glass. Don't overmuddle as mint will impart a bitter flavor.
  2. Add apricot puree, simple syrup, rosewater, and ice. Fill with seltzer and stir. Top with small mint sprig.
  3. Remember the apricot compote I made? If you puree this more or strain it, you have the perfect apricot puree for this drink. Alternatively, you can use store-bought apricot nectar but may need to adjust the sweetness.
* Alternatively, you can also sweeten the drink with apple juice, but the flavor won't be as apricotty.
