Blackberry Herb Cooler

Blackberry Herb Cooler

I'm sure I am not the only one who gets creative experimenting with refreshing non-alcoholic (and alcoholic at times) beverages around the summertime. I came up with this recipe out of pure boredom, and wanting something refreshing and hydrating, that wasn't good 'ole water. I am going to attempt to maintain this beverage section of the site, after getting a lot of positive response from THIS recipe. Any suggestions or things you want me to create? Shoot me an email or DM on Instagram! Also, with the recipe below, feel free to swap the blackberries with your favorite summer fruit (blueberries, strawberries, etc.) and herbs! You can't really go wrong! Plus, this drink would make a LOVELY addition to a summer BBQ, cocktail hour, or refreshing beach beverage!

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 3 organic blackberries (yes only three)
  • 2-3 leaves of organic basil and mint
  • Ice

Prep

This "recipe" couldn't be easier. Simply add all ingredients to a high speed blender, and blend for 1 minute. Pour the beverage into a glass and serve chilled over ice.
