REC: Blackberry Gin Fizz
Saw this today. Looks yummy.
BLACKBERRY-GIN FIZZ (MAKES 8)
Use the ripest, juiciest blackberries or
raspberries for this cocktail.
1 6-oz. container blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups gin
1 cup fresh lime juice
8 sprigs Thai basil or sweet basil
Purée blackberries and sugar in the blender.
Let stand, stirring occasionally, until sugar is
dissolved, about 10 minutes. Strain purée through
a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher (there will be
about 3/4 cup); discard seeds in sieve. Stir gin
and lime juice into pitcher.
Divide drink among ice-filled glasses; top with
club soda. Garnish each with a basil sprig.
