Fresh Fruit

The hot weather is back, though the humidity is much lower.  The market was stocked with just picked, local blackberries this afternoon, and they found their way into a cocktail this evening.

The berries were pureed with sugar syrup and then put through a strainer to remove the seeds.  The puree went into a cocktail shaker with lime juice and a healthy dose of Plymouth gin.  That mixture got a thorough shaking with ice and then was poured over fresh ice into a tall glass.  A bit of seltzer water completed the deal, along with a slice of lime.

Quite tasty and the official name is a Blackberry Fizz.
