Sweet berries, tart lime juice, vodka, and fizzy water combine to make a summery and refreshing cocktail.Blackberry Lime Vodka Fizz | A Nerd CooksIt’s Monday, it’s hot, and a drink wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world right now.  Anyone else in a similar mental place?

It’s my first full summer in Durham, and dang.  It is hot.  I know it’s only going to get worse, too, with August right around the corner.  Cold, fizzy drinks are very necessary.Blackberry Lime Vodka Fizz | A Nerd CooksMuddle up some super ripe berries, add some tart lime juice, some booze, and top it all off with something bubbly.   Couldn’t be easier.  Or more refreshing.
