As the winter weather drags on here in Buffalo, NY I found myself craving a little taste of summer today. This is one of my favorite drinks because it is sweet, simple and refreshing. If you put a little prep into the blackberry syrup ahead of time and store it in the fridge you can have these ready to go at a moments notice when friends stop in on a summer afternoon, or even when you are getting a little sick of snow.
This is also a great drink for beginners to experiment with because you can swap out different fruits and liquors really easily. This recipe is so simple that it is hard to break by playing around, so feel free to get creative!
