Blackberry Crush Cocktail
It's cocktail time! I don't know about you, but I love a good cocktail (aka sippy sip). Every month, I host Sip & Spills for my friends. It's a chance for us to relax, relate, and release! The Blackberry Crush Cocktail was the signature drink a few months ago and it was a hit! So, it was a no-brainer when deciding which cocktail to feature first on my channel.
There are so many things to love about this cocktail. First, it doesn't require a lot ingredients or steps. I appreciate the fact that I didn't have to go to bartending school to recreate this recipe. I also love that this recipe calls for fresh fruit. Adding fruit to a cocktail brings natural sweetness and flavor. This cuts down on the amount of added and artificial sugars included in a cocktail, which is great! It's also fun to make with others, but can easily be prepped before your get-togethers for your guests to self-serve.
4- 5 blackberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon low carb simple syrup
1 1/4 ounces vodka
Mint sprig (optional)
In a glass, combine blackberries, lemon juice, and low carb simple syrup. Lightly crush the blackberries to release their juice.
Add ice and vodka, and top with seltzer. Stir to combine.
Garnish with a mint sprig (optional).
