Here is a light refreshing drink for Summer with not only fruit but herbs for that extra special flavour.
Blackberries are high in vitamin c and antioxidants and are in season in Summer. They can also be frozen and would take no time to defrost in the sun just before drinks are served.
Blackberry + Thyme Vodka Collins
- 45ml vodka
- 30ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 15ml simple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
- Small handful of blackberries
- 2-3 sprigs of thyme
- Club soda
- Fresh lemon slices for garnish
Add the vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, blackberries, and thyme to a
highball or Collins glass.
Muddle using a cocktail muddler or the back
of a spoon. Add ice and stir thoroughly. Top with club soda. Give it
another gentle stir, and garnish with a slice of lemon.
