Our team at Margaret McHenry Maids, the choice maid service in Wichita, Kansas, is providing some mocktails—alcohol-free cocktails—that delight the senses and invigorate the soul. Check out our favorite recipes to stay hydrated while enjoying the most inviting flavors of summer!

  • Lavender Rosemary Lemonade

    Lavender and rosemary are not just for aromatherapy—they make for an exquisite pairing in this elegant lemonade. Both calming and refreshing, this mocktail is perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the garden or an evening poolside.

    What You’ll Need:

    • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4-6 lemons)

    • 2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender
    • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
    • Ice
    • Lemon slices and lavender sprigs for garnish

    Preparation:

    1. Prepare the Lavender Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, 1 cup of water, lavender, and rosemary. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let steep for 20 minutes.
    2. Strain and Mix: Strain the lavender syrup into a large pitcher, discarding the solids. Add the fresh lemon juice and the remaining 3 cups of cold water. Stir well.
