Our pal @theherbsomm originally brewed this Love Potion for Valentine’s Day (reminder: it’s always right around the corner) but this über-delicious non-alcoholic mix-tail is bound to spice up any day that needs spicin’…Cheers to love!


Cardamom Simple Syrup
• 1 cup Water
• 1 cup Granulated Sugar
• 3 heaping tbsp. Cracked Cardamom Pods

Cardamom Sugar Rim
• 1 tbsp. Granulated Sugar
• ¼ tsp. Ground Cardamom
• Lemon Wedge

Strawberry Cardamom ‘Love Potion’ Hoppy Spritz
• 6 Small Strawberries, cut in half
• ½ cup Raspberries
• 1 ½ oz. Fresh-Squeezed Lemon Juice
• 1 oz. Cardamom Simple Syrup
• Ice
• Lagunitas Hoppy Refresher
• Slices of strawberry, raspberries, and pink edible flowers, for garnish



Cardamom Simple Syrup
Boil one cup of water in a saucepan, then add sugar, stirring slowly until it dissolves completely. Add cracked cardamom pods and continue to stir and heat on low for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover the saucepan, then leave the cardamom pods in the simple syrup to infuse for about 45 minutes, or to taste. Allow the syrup to cool completely. Using a fine-mesh strainer, separate the liquid from the solids over a Mason jar. Discard the solids, then store the cardamom simple syrup in the refrigerator to chill.

Cardamom Sugared Rim
Combine the sugar and ground cardamom in a shallow saucer. Mix well using a spoon. Rim a stemless wine glass with a lemon wedge and then dip the top of the glass into the cardamom sugar blend to create a sugared rim. Set the glass aside as you prepare the drink.

Redberry Cardamom ‘Love Potion’ Hoppy Spritz
In a shaker tin, muddle the strawberries and raspberries until juicy. Add the lemon juice, cardamom simple syrup, and ice, then shake for 15 seconds or until über cold. Carefully strain the liquid to remove any seeds and solids into the prepared glass filled with fresh ice. Top with Hoppy Refresher, then gently stir to combine. Garnish with slices of strawberries and raspberries (and maybe some pink edible flowers if it’s V-Day).
