Summer is in full swing and with the weekend coming up what better time to try a new cocktail recipe!!
Watch me make this cocktail on Show Me St. Louis with Dana Dean and Anthony Slaughter!
Ok this legit might be my favorite cocktail BTR has made with fresh fruit thus far (although last year’s blackberry mojito was AMAZING)! We have been making more gin drinks lately because they are so refreshing in this heat!
We always have so much fun picking blackberries at Eckert’s, and we always come home with a TON! So we use some for baking, freeze a few, and always make plenty of cocktails!
Here’s the recipe for the blackberry gin fizz!
2 oz gin, our favorite is 1220 Origin
1 tablespoon simple sugar
1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
Plain sparkling water (grab it at Schnucks!)
Muddle the blackberries, some mint, and simple sugar in a glass.
Add gin, lemon juice, and ice and stir to combine.
Top the glass off with sparkling water and stir again!
Garnish with mint.
Pin it for later!
