My very first cocktail recipe!
I actually have tried my hand at a few different cocktail recipes but in the end, I never liked the photos enough to share. It was almost the case for this one as well, but I gave it a second chance. Like burgers and sandwiches, I also have a hard time photographing drinks. It’s likely due to the fact that overhead shots don’t always look best, or what I most recently discovered, you need quite. a few servings to fill out the picture. Since I like to make small batch recipes, I am not typically making 6-8 drinks. This week, I discovered a little trick to get around that, can anyone tell?
The other reason I had shied away from cocktails in the past is to stick with sharing healthy recipes. And while we do not necessarily need cocktails to round out a healthy diet. I have always believed that everything in moderation is important. And it’s the summer and I love the idea of making fun drinks to share with friends and sip at the pool. So here’s the recipe! I hope you do the same!
- 12 blackberries
- 12 mint leaves divided
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 lime juiced
- 3 oz rum
- 1 cup seltzer
Muddle the blackberries, mint, sugar, and lime.
In a cocktail shaker add the muddled mixture, rum, ice.
Strain the mixture over ice.
Add the seltzer.
Garnish with mints and extra blackberries.
