blackberry smash

It’s a beautiful day and it’s the long weekend (that means daytime drinking is allowed).

I tried this berry-licious cocktail (thank you with some friends last night and it’s amazing with booze or without.

I didn’t follow the recipe exactly so here’s my version:


  • Fresh blackberries
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Gingerale
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Vodka (optional)

Directions (makes one serving):

  1. Muddle 10 blackberries and 10 mint leaves in a cocktail shaker
  2. Add lemon juice and half a can of Gingerale, stir
  3. Put ice and vodka (if using) in a rock glass
  4. Top off with blackberry/mint/Gingerale mixture

Bottoms up!
