Embrace the Mocktail

Recently a friend of mine and I got into an epic fancy drink creation battle.  Ok…so it wasn’t quite that epic, but we had a good time.  I was also incredibly satisfied with one drink I made with black & blueberries.  My favorite part of the drink (besides the taste, obviously) is the vivid color.  It makes a great contrast to any summer table setting.

Black & Blueberry Mocktail

Servings: 1 short tumbler


  • 2-3 fresh blackberries
  • 5-6 fresh blueberries
  • 3 mint leaves
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 oz. agave nectar
  • 5 oz. club soda

1. Using a cocktail shaker, muddle the blackberries, blueberries, and mint leaves with the juice of half a lime in the bottom of the shaker.

2. Add in the agave nectar and club soda and stir.

3. Using a strainer with semi-large holes, strain the mixture into a glass with ice.  I like to have some of the berry-mint bits come through, so I don’t suggest a fine sieve.  However, you do you, so strain however you like!

4. Enjoy!
