Sweet Dreams are Made of These: A Soothing Mocktail Recipe for a Restful Night


Welcome to the world of restful nights and energized mornings! At City Mattress, we believe that great sleep is the cornerstone of a healthy and happy life. That's why we offer a range of mattresses, bedding, furniture, and accessories designed to enhance your sleep experience. But did you know what you drink before bed can also significantly impact your sleep quality? Today, we're sharing a delightful sleep mocktail recipe that’s a naturally refreshing alternative to traditional nightcaps, is easy to make, delicious to drink, and perfect for helping you drift off into a peaceful slumber.


Nature's Sleep Aids in a Glass

  • Chamomile Tea: This herbal tea is a classic sleep remedy for a reason. Chamomile boasts calming properties that can ease anxiety and promote relaxation, making it easier to drift off to sleep.

  • Lavender Simple Syrup: Lavender oil is renowned for its soothing and calming effects. Adding a touch of lavender simple syrup to your mocktail creates a delightful floral aroma and enhances the relaxation factor.



Crafting Your Calming Mocktail


  • 1 cup brewed chamomile tea, cooled
  • 1 tablespoon lavender simple syrup (easily made by simmering equal parts water and sugar with a few sprigs of lavender, then straining)
  • Sparkling water or club soda (to taste)
  • Optional: A squeeze of fresh lemon or lime for a touch of brightness
  • Garnish with a sprig of fresh lavender (for extra calming vibes)



  • Fill a glass with ice.
  • Pour in the cooled chamomile tea and lavender simple syrup.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon or lime if desired.
  • Top it off with sparkling water or club soda.
  • Stir gently to combine, garnish with a sprig of lavender, and enjoy!


Pro Tip: If you're feeling a little achy, consider adding a teaspoon of honey to your mocktail. Honey is a natural source of magnesium, a mineral that can contribute to muscle relaxation and improved sleep quality.
