Recently a friend of mine and I got into an epic fancy drink creation battle. Ok…so it wasn’t quite that epic, but we had a good time. I was also incredibly satisfied with one drink I made with black & blueberries. My favorite part of the drink (besides the taste, obviously) is the vivid color. It makes a great contrast to any summer table setting.
Black & Blueberry Mocktail
Servings: 1 short tumbler
- 2-3 fresh blackberries
- 5-6 fresh blueberries
- 3 mint leaves
- 1 lime
- 1/2 oz. agave nectar
- 5 oz. club soda
1. Using a cocktail shaker, muddle the blackberries, blueberries, and mint leaves with the juice of half a lime in the bottom of the shaker.
2. Add in the agave nectar and club soda and stir.
3. Using a strainer with semi-large holes, strain the mixture into a glass with ice. I like to have some of the berry-mint bits come through, so I don’t suggest a fine sieve. However, you do you, so strain however you like!
