Sweet berries, tart lime juice, vodka, and fizzy water combine to make a summery and refreshing cocktail.It’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.Muddle 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.
You’ll need (makes 1 cocktail):
- 5 very ripe blackberries
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1.5 oz vodka
- LaCroix Curaté Muré Pepino (blackberry cucumber)
- fresh blackberries and thin slices of lime, for garnish
Drop the blackberries into the bottom of a tall glass. Squeeze half of a lime on top. Muddle the blackberries.
Fill the glass most of the way with ice. Add the vodka and top with LaCroix. Garnish with slices of lime and blackberries. Drink up!
