Blackberry and Mint Gin Fizz
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Water
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 cup Blackberries
4 Cocktail Skewers
4 Lime Wedges
4 Mint Sprigs
Add sugar, lemon juice, lime juice, water and berries into a medium pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Let simmer until sugar and berries are dissolved and syrup is thick.
Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pushing syrup through with the back of a spoon. Cool and pour into a bottle.
Gently squirt blackberry syrup onto the bottom of your cocktail glasses. Top with ice.
Mix gin and soda separately and pour gently and slowly into all cups without overly agitating the syrup.
White Table Tip: Garnish with a skewered blackberry and top with lime and mint for added detail.
