Blackberry Lemon Mocktail     

1/2 cup fresh blackberries, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup pre-made lemonade, juice of 1 lemon, lemon slices, seltzer/club soda, mint

  1. Add the blackberries to a small sauce pan and mash them with a fork or potato masher until broken down into small bits.
  2. Add the sugar, water and lemonade and bring to a simmer.
  3. Simmer over low-medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  4. Strain the mixture to remove the bits of blackberry, add the juice from the lemon and refrigerate the liquid until cooled.
  5. Once cooled, pour the liquid evenly among 4 glasses filled with ice cubes.
  6. Add seltzer until glass is full.
  7. Garnish with lemon slices, mint and extra blackberries.

St. Germain Spritz

1 oz. St. Germain Liquor, 1 oz. Campari, 7 oz. sparkling white wine or club soda (optional garnishes are cherries, apricot slices, or fresh mint leaves)

  1. Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Add in St. Germain, Campari, and sparkling white wine.
