There are lots of interesting flavours to choose from, so pick your favourite and let it brew for at least 12 hours so that the flavours really get a chance to develop. Choose herbs, fruit or other ingredients that will enhance the flavour to add into your mocktail – mint leaves in a peppermint tea or some frozen berries in the fruity options, add some ice and it’s ready to go.
