Two requirements of any beverage I make – beautiful and delicious!

Here in Arizona, the temps get pretty high (and a lot earlier than other parts of the country). So even if it’s not blackberry season, I love that I can buy frozen blackberries all year round at the grocery store and have this refreshing drink… any time I want!

Do you know what else I love about this refreshing blackberry cocktail?

This beverage could easily be made as a very refreshing ‘mocktail’, sans alcohol. Simply by adding the muddled blackberries to the bottom of the glass, topped with crushed ice, a bit of 7-up and a few blackberries on top. It looks identical and tastes amazing too!

FYI: Muddled is simply a fancy term for “smashed”. Haha

    I’m salivating!! I love a good poolside cocktail/mocktail recipe for the Summer and everything is better with a Rosemary sprig. I’m definitely making these for my sons grad party next week! The mocktail version, of course. Ha, ha!

    1. The mocktail is delightful. When I add the rum, it’s truly just a splash – since I barely drink! This will be great for his grad party!!!

    1. Oooooh, let me know what they think! A splash of the coconut rum is all it takes, but it’s just as yummy (and gorgeous) without the rum. xo

  2. This looks so refreshing! I love anything blackberry so definitely going to have to make this at home!
