Blackberry Lime Cocktail Recipe

Blackberry Lime Cocktail Recipe

During the hustle and bustle that is the holiday season, many of us could use a great cocktail to relax with. I created a recipe using delicious ripe blackberries with a touch of lime.

If you have trouble finding blackberry vodka where you live, if you plan ahead you can make it yourself as seen at A Thrifty Mrs, or you can substitute another blackberry liquor of your liking. Bottoms up!

Blackberry Lime Cocktail Recipe

Yield: 1 cocktail

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

8-10 blackberries, reserve 2-3 for garnish
1 can lemon lime soda (you can substitute club soda if you like)
1-2 slices of lime
pinch of lime zest + juice from one squeeze of a lime (don't use ALL of the juice from a lime. Just one squeeze)
1 shot (1.5 fl. ounce) blackberry vodka (or other blackberry liquor)
optional: ice
for garnish: cocktail pick

Directions:

1. Add the clean blackberries to the bottom of the cocktail glass. (Remember to reserve a few for garnish)

2. Muddle the blackberries to break them up a bit. Pour a chilled can of lemon lime soda over the blackberries. Add the vodka and ice and gently stir.

3. Zest a small portion of the lime. Cut a few thin slices of lime. Add one to the side of the glass for garnish. Add a pinch of zest to the drink, along with one squeeze of remaining lime half. Use a cocktail pick to skewer the reserved blackberries and set on the rim of the glass. Serve immediately.
