Ingredients

  • 12 fresh blackberries
  • 12 large mint leaves
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup seltzer water
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz.) vodka or rum
  • ice cubes

Instructions

  • Muddle* blackberries, mint leaves, juices and sugar in a tall glass until berries are mostly crushed and mint releases flavor.  (If you don’t have a muddler, a wooden spoon or firm silicon spatula works well).
  • Add seltzer, vodka or rum, and ice to fill glass. Stir well. Garnish with a lime wedge and mint leaves.

Notes

*To muddle is a cocktail term meaning to gently crush.  Click here to see a muddler. I had to look it up the first time I saw the term!
