Blackberry Gin Fizz
makes 2 drinks
1/4 cup fresh blackberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup gin (just shy of 3 shots)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from about two limes)
2 sprigs sweet basil or 2 thin lime wedges (for garnish)
Purée blackberries and sugar in a blender until as liquefied as possible. Strain the purée through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl/liquid measuring cup/ your drink glasses. Discard the seeds left in the sieve. Divide blackberry puree, gin, and lime juice between two tall glasses and stir to combine. Add ice to each glass, then top with soda. Add garnish as desired. Cheers!
