It’s Friday and spring has finally arrived around Seattle, which means we’ll likely spend some of the weekend tending to our garden beds and at the nursery. We hope you have a wonderful spring weekend ahead, complete with some relaxation and your favorite indulgences.
Our Blushing Blackberry and Mint Sparkler is a perfect spring cocktail (or mocktail) – wouldn’t it make for the loveliest wedding cocktail welcome, too?
Recipe yields about 6 glasses:
24 oz. of pink lemonade | 6 oz. good vodka | sparkling water to top | 1/3 cup of fresh blackberries | bouquet of mint plus 6 sprigs | ice
Gently muddle a small bouquet of mint and blackberries with ice (reserving a handful of blackberries to garnish)
Place the muddled concoction in a shaker and add 1 oz. vodka and 4 oz. lemonade. Shake and strain into tall cocktail glasses and top with sparkling water.
Garnish with extra mint sprigs and blackberries.
To make a non-alcoholic version, simply remove the vodka.
