Servings: 2

Blueberry and Thyme Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large tbsp thyme, removed from stem
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen

Blueberry Mocktail

  • sugar, for rimming glass
  • lemon wedge, for rimming glass
  • 6 ounces blueberry simple syrup
  • 2 ounces lemon juice
  • 1 ounce maple syrup
  • 4-8 ounces seltzer, plain
  • blueberries, for garnish
  • thyme, fresh, for garnish


  1. Start by making the simple syrup. Add the water, sugar, and thyme to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved, 2-3 minutes. Add the blueberries and continue to simmer until they have broken down and the sauce begins to thicken, about 10-15 minutes. Let cool slightly then strain into a jar, pushing down on the blueberries to release as much of the simple syrup as possible.
  2. Add sugar to coat the bottom of a small plate, then use a lemon wedge to wet the rim of 2 glasses. Press the rims of the glasses into the sugar to coat.
  3. Add 3 ounces blueberry simple syrup to the bottom of each glass, then fill each glass about 2/3 of the way with crushed ice. Add 1 ounce lemon juice and 1/2 ounce maple syrup to each glass. Top each off with seltzer, then garnish with blueberries and thyme.
