“For me, being queer is a lot like mixing cocktails,” says recipe developer John deBary. “The best drinks take diverse and unique ingredients and mix them to create a harmonious whole that still reflects the beauty and individuality of each ingredient. And to me the best aspects of the queer community share that quality as well—a stunning diversity of identities and experiences come together to create a welcoming and beautiful whole.”

This alcohol-free summer refresher features deBary’s Super Summer Fruit Syrup, a bright and glorious infusion of peak summer fruit like peaches and mangoes, along with chamomile, ginger, and turmeric. In the spirit of inclusivity, it plays well with just about anything you add to it—sparkling water, tonic water, sparkling wine. Or up the ABV with a splash of your favorite spirit.

For more ways to use deBary’s fruit syrup, try his Summery Sour or Garden Party Super Punch.
