The weekend is right around the corner and we’ve got the perfect cocktail recipe to help you celebrate summer- A Blackberry and Thyme Spritzer.

 

Blackberry Thyme Spritzer Recipe – Makes 4 cocktails
1 c. blackberries
1 c. Water
1 c. sugar
1 bottle of champagne
4 ounces or 1/2 c. gin
4 long sprigs of thyme

 

In a small saucepan, bring blackberries, water, and sugar to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, until the blackberries are soft and the simple syrup has turned to a bright pink/redish color. Remove from heat, drain blackberries, and allow to cool. Next, begin by adding 1 ounce of gin to each champagne glass, followed by 2 ounces of homemade blackberry simple syrup. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne and top with a sprig of thyme in each glass.
