Some Girls need Flowers and Mocktails

This Monday, I need something pretty. Everyone needs a little pick me up sometimes. It's pretty and bright just like this Monday is starting out here in Baltimore.

Flowers and Mocktails



6 Blackberries (muddled)

1 oz Lime Juice

1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Top with Grapefruit Soda

Garnish: Blackberries and a Flower

Recipe: In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries and simple syrup. Add ice then lime juice. Close and Shake until cold to the touch. Double Strain into a highball glass with ice. Top with Grapefruit soda. Garnish with Blackberries.

This mocktail is a perfect way to marry a light citrus with a strong fruit. Half the battle with blackberries is choosing one that will be sweet. My trick for muddling is use the ones that feel juicy or squishy to the touch. This will provide a light sweetness and will be easy to muddle. A perfect mocktail to start your week!
