The Preggie Provençe is one of the fascinating mocktails from Natalie Bovis-Nelsen's 2008 book, Preggatinis™ (published by The Globe Pequot Press) and I love it because it combines two of my favorite herbs, lavender and rosemary. When that flavor combination is enhance with lemonade, the resulting drink is next to divine. This lovely sipper is ideal for a garden brunch, a baby shower or anytime you want a non-alcoholic beverage to delight the taste buds.

What You'll Need

  • 5-6 rosemary leaves
  • 3-4 white grapes, halved
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh lavender flower petals
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 ounces lemonade
  • 3 ounces DRY Sparkling Lavender Soda
  • 1 lemon wheel
  • 1 sprig rosemary

How to Make It

  1. Muddle rosemary leaves with the cut grapes, simple syrup, lavender flower petals, and grated lemon peel in the bottom of a mixing glass.
  2. Add lemonade, then shake well with ice.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass.
  4. Top with lavender soda, and garnish with a lemon wheel and a sprig of rosemary.
