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.
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.
