Alcohol Free Mead Recipe


This is a non-alcohol mead recipe that is ready to drink the same day you make it. There is no yeast or fermentation involved. While I haven't tried this recipe yet it looks pretty good. And is real easy to make. If you give it a try send me an email and let me know how it tastes.


The Basic Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 Part Apple Juice
  • 2 Parts Honey
  • 3 Parts Water

If you want to make about One gallon of this mead here are the volumes:

  • 21 ounces apple juice
  • 42 ounces Honey
  • 63 ounces water

If this is a little too exacting you simple use the cup method! two cups of apple juice, four cups of honey and six cups of water. Gives you 96 ounces or about three-quarters of a gallon.

Mix these ingredients in a pan and bring it slowly to a boil then let it simmer for about half an hour. After it cools you strain it into a container and refrigerate it just before serving it.

I got this recipe from this blog here thanks! And the author has some great suggestions for spicing up the mead (These spices also work well for traditional mead) Here are her suggestions:

-Add cloves, cinnamon, or orange slices for a spicier mead

- Add Ginger and Herbs for a soothing tonic

- Add mint to make it a lively social cocktail

Here is another non-Alcohol Mead Recipe

This is an interesting Mead recipe that you can drink the same day you make it. If you never tasted mead and you are anxious to try you might want to give this recipe a shot. It was submitted by Shawn E. and he found the recipe in the book: "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practicioner" written by Scott Cunningham.

Soft Mead

1 quart water, preferably spring water
1 cup honey
1 sliced lemon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Boil together all ingredients in a non-metallic pot. While boiling,
scrape off the rising "scum" with a wooden spoon. When no more rises add
the following:

pinch salt
juice of 1/2 lemon

Strain and cool. Drink in place of alcoholic mead or wine.

I also have a video you can watch on making a delicious near mead (it contains some alcohol content however)
