Featured Poolside Cocktail: The Gin Berry Fizz

The best days of summer are spent poolside with a good book
and an even better drink. 
This is part of that even better category.

Gin Berry Fizz
(adapted from the Smitten Kitchen)

1 package blackberries
1/2 cup sugar (or in my case truvia)
1 liter soda water
Juice of two limes
2 shots of gin
(or your alcohol of choice) 
1 shot of chambord

Pulse the berries and sugar in a food processor until their a juicy mushy mess.
Press through a sieve into a pitcher.
(Trick, use some of the bubble water to get the juice to go through without the seeds)
Squeeze the limes into the pitcher.
Add soda water.
Pour into ice filled cups and add the alcohol you prefer.
(The girls at our place always choose gin. 
The boys love to experiment with tequila, vodka, and rum)
Add chambord.

I also added some frozen berries to the mix... To cool things off further and to look pretty.

Also, Mr. T decided to take the seeds from the blackberries and toss them into the soil in our garden. 
We don't have a sprawling blackberry bush (is that what they grow on?) yet... 
But I'm sure it's just a matter of time.
