An Iced Tea Mocktail To Try Now

As soon as the weather hits 20 degrees, my cravings for iced tea exemplify. I love traditional black iced tea but I’m always on the lookout to try different types of teas with unique combinations.

I attended Teapigs cocktail mixer a few weeks ago and fell in love with one they were serving called Marrakesh Mocktail. They were kind enough to share the recipe with me so, it was only fair I share it with all of you. It’s made with green tea with peppermint and has the most refreshing taste. Enjoy!

Marrakesh Mocktail 


  • 15 oz. teapigs Marrakesh green tea with peppermint (4 tea temples) (chilled)
  • 5 oz. Apple juice
  • 2 ½ oz. Fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ½ oz. Simple syrup*
  • 9 dashes pineapple & star anise bitters
  • Top with soda water to your liking


  1. Start by brewing some tea. To make the process easier, brew 4 cups of tea with 4 teapigs Marrakesh green tea with peppermint tea temples to ensure you have enough for the recipe. Steep for a bit longer than you would for a cup of tea to make sure the flavour stands out – 10 minutes.
  2. Once steeped, remove tea temples and allow to chill.
  3. Add all the ingredients, except the soda water, into an ice filled pitcher. Add garnish and stir until all ingredients are mixed.
  4. Top with ice and soda water. Pour into a Collins glass to serve.

*How To Make Simple Syrup: Pour equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan. 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water will make 1 ½ cups of simple syrup once dissolved. Stir the simple syrup and place the saucepan over medium heat. Heat ingredients until dissolved.
