Blackberry Summertime Spritzer

 Blackberry Summertime Spritzer

This spritzer recipe is a skinny and refreshing twist to the Moscow Mule.  Blackberries are our favorite and they are in peak season.  Blackberries are high in fiber (1 cup provides approximately 8 grams), vitamins A, C, and K, and the antioxidant anthocyanin, which give them their purple hue.  You can’t go wrong muddling them into a beverage.  They add a naturally sweet and refreshing flavor.    

 

Ingredients
(1 serving)
  • 4-5 blackberries
  • 1/2 c ice
  • 1 part ginger beer
  • 2 parts club soda
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced (we prefer lemon but lime will do just fine)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 sprig mint
*For an adult drink, add 1 shot of Ketel One Citroen.
 
Directions
1. In a cocktail glass or copper mug, muddle blackberries to preferred consistency.
2. Add the following ingredients as listed (ice, ginger beer, club soda, fresh lemon juice, and honey). 
3. Stir, top with a sprig of mint, and serve.
