Fresh blackberries and mint make this fizz cocktail a summer’s dream!
This crisp and refreshing cocktail is a keeper!
The Perfect Fizz Cocktail
A few years ago my husband and I had some work done on our back patio. We had been living in our current house for 3 years and the patio was a disaster. It consisted of uneven bricks that were crumbly and filled with weeds coming through. We spent a little bit of money to make it a usable and enjoyable space. That summer we used the patio all the time. We had endless bonfires and drinks with friends.
Sadly, that may have been the last time we fully enjoyed that space. Our lives got infinitely busier, but so did the lives of our friends. There just isn’t enough time. We hardly have to time to eat dinner together let alone sit outside and relax.
Now that the all-consuming baseball season is coming to a close, I’ve decided that we will enter “patio season”. The month of July will be all about the patio. We will eat dinner out there, have a stupid amount of bonfires and my husband and I will sit and enjoy cocktails whether we have friends to join us or not.
Blackberry Bourbon Fizz Cocktail To Refresh
This bourbon cocktail is the type of cocktail that you would sip on a patio. It is fresh tasting, crisp and delicious. Plump, sweet blackberries and combined with fresh mint leaves, lime juice, and bourbon then poured over ice and topped with fizzy club soda. Each component brings an invigorating taste to your lips. I used Bulleit bourbon, but use your favorite of course. This is a great drink for entertaining, it is easy and can be made quickly!
