I have a new favorite berry. Blackberries. Raspberries are a strong second! How about you? What is your favorite berry? Since I also love to try new cocktail recipes, I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate my new favorite berry.
So, dear friends, I have a new-to-me favorite cocktail that I think you’re going to love! It’s a blackberry cocktail recipe.

But first, I’d love to know where you get fresh berries? Does anyone else remember picking wild blackberries as a child? I know I did. Even as a grown up. I haven’t seen wild blackberries in a long time. My brothers, sisters, and I would take plastic bowls and walk through the woods around our house. I’m not sure how many blackberries actually made it home though!
Now I get my berries from BJ’s or Costco. Except for strawberries. I get them from my next door Amish neighbor. I’ve talked about them before when I shared my recipes for Strawberry Shortcake Daiquiris (low carb version, chocolate strawberry protein smoothie, Strawberry Banana Pina Colada, and Sugar-free Strawberry Lemonade.
I start out by mashing up about 5 blackberries in a small bowl. I used the bottom of the cocktail glass to smash them. Then I poured the mashed up berries through a strainer to keep the seeds out of the drink.
I then poured the blackberry syrup, vodka, pineapple juice, and lemon juice into a shaker with some ice. That’s it!
Garnish with a lemon slice and some whole blackberries if you’d like.
