I know that blackberries aren't in season quite yet (they're more of a summer fruit, beginning around May), but I found this non-alcoholic drink that I just can't wait to share. It starts up with fresh blackberries mixed with sugar and lemon juice. Then topped off with soda. Personally I think it sounds refreshing - it's like my favorite after work treat (sparkling water with a splash of juice) - and they even recommend that you serve it with a straw. To check out the recipe,
125g ripe blackberries
1 tbsp strained lemon juice
1 ice cube
Mix the berries with sugar and lemon juice in.
Strain into a highball or wine glass.
Fill up with soda.
Garnish with a slice of lemon or, like in the image, with a blackberry.
Serve with a straw.
This non-alcoholic cocktail also looks great in a wine glass or a brandy glass.
