As soon as all the spring and summer fruits start appearing at the Farmer’s Markets and the grocery stores, my mind immediately turns to fruity cocktails. There is just nothing better than sitting on your back porch, sipping a refreshing fruity mixed drink.

Ingredients in this Blackberry Vodka Martini
There are only four ingredients in this luscious fruity martini! That’s one of the things I love about martini’s, they don’t usually require many ingredients!
Vodka – since this the main liquor, you want to use a good quality vodka, this is not the time for the cheap stuff.
Cassis – a darkly colored, sweet black currant liqueur. It tastes like a cross between a blackberry and a pomegranate. You can read more about Cassis – 3 Reasons You Should Be Using Cassis Now! If you can’t find cassis, you can substitute raspberry liqueur, or just omit and have a plain blackberry martini.
Blackberries – for muddling and garnish.
Lime Juice – freshly squeezed.
