Ingredients

  • 3/4 ounce fresh mint about 5-6 sprigs
  • 1 cucumber sliced thin
  • 12 ounces blackberries
  • 3/4 cup lime juice fresh squeezed from about 3 limes
  • 8 teaspoons turbinado sugar or white sugar
  • 1 cup gin
  • 1 cup club soda or sparkling water
  • extra blackberries, mint and cucumber for garnish if desired

Instructions

  • Place mint, cucumber slices, blackberries, lime juice and sugar into a pitcher. Use a wooden spoon or a muddler to gently release the flavors.
  • Stir in the gin and the club soda.
  • Garnish if desired.

Notes

Use fresh squeezed limes, not bottled. 
Turbinado sugar is less processed than white sugar.  It will give a fuller more rounder flavor, however you can substitute white sugar.
