A couple of years ago J and I went to a CUESA event at the Ferry Building… tons of great food, music and most importantly (for Fun Drink Friday that is…) tons of great drinks. We were able to sample many fabulous concoctions but our favorite was hands down – Square One Vodka’s Blackberry Swizzle.
For J and I to wholeheartedly agree on a cocktail is rare… so this is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
1.5 oz of Square One Basil (hard to find, but BevMo does carry it… it’s worth the search!)
4 fresh blackberries
1/2 oz of fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz of agave nectar
Garnish: blackberries, basil, etc.
Muddle the berries then add remaining ingredients (except ginger beer) and shake with ice. Strain into a glass filled with ice and top with ginger beer. Stir and garnish!
