Ingredients
  • 6 ounces Wish Farms blackberries, plus 4 additional blackberries for topping
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • mint leaves, to taste
  • ½ cup Wish Farms strawberries, mashed, plus 2 additional strawberries for decorating
  • ½ cup coconut rum
  • club soda, to taste
  • 1 lime
Instructions
  1. Place 6 ounces blackberries, sugar and water into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar melts while also mashing the blackberries against the side of the pan. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Place mint leaves into the palm of one hand and use your other hand to smack the leaves. This releases the aroma without breaking the mint into tiny pieces. Place the mint at the bottom of two glasses.
  3. Strain the blackberries from the simple syrup. Divide the mashed blackberries between the glasses. Divide the mashed strawberries between the glasses.
  4. Add ¼ cup coconut rum to each glass followed by 1 tablespoon of the blackberry simple syrup. If you prefer a sweeter drink, add more blackberry simple syrup. If you prefer a tarter drink, use less.
  5. Add ice to the glass.
  6. Top off with club soda.
  7. Cut the lime in half. Set aside two thick slices and squeeze the remaining lime juice into the glasses.
  8. Gently stir.
  9. To decorate each drink, place a lime slice and strawberry on the edge of each glass, a sprig of mint coming out and place two blackberries on top.
