Grapefruit and Lavender Mocktail

A thirst-quenching, tart, herbal mixture, this grapefruit and lavender mocktail recipe uses vinegars from Tart as seen on From the Source, season 3. This recipe makes a batch of 6 drinks. Katie Button recommends serving it in a glass with a sugared rim to cut the sourness from the vinegar, and using crushed ice, if available!

Servings 6 servings


  • 1 slice of lime
  • 3 sprigs mint
  • 9 ounces Tart Oro Blanco vinegar plus two tablespoons for dampening glass
  • 6 ounces Tart Lavender vinegar
  • 3 ounces simple syrup
  • 6 ounces sparkling water

Rim & Garnish

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 6 slices lime
  • 6 sprigs mint
  • crushed ice


  • Place the mint and lime into a pitcher or large bowl and muddle together. Stir the oro blanco and lavender vinegars and the simple syrup.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and salt and mix together. Dampen the edge/rim of the beverage glasses with the reserved 2 tablespoons of oro blanco vinegar  and roll one side of the glass into the salt and sugar mixture. Think margarita rim.
  • Fill the glass with ice and garnish a slice of lime and a sprig of mint. Pour 3 oz of the vinegar mixture into each glass. Top with 1 oz of sparkling water and enjoy.


Cooks Note: to make simple syrup, combine equal parts by volume of sugar and water and bring to a simmer. Allow to cool before using.
