BLACKBERRY LIMEADE

RECIPES

With the weather being absolutely perfect this past weekend, we hung out at our friend’s house and sat on their deck. They hosted a Korean BBQ and with all the delicious food pretty much covered, I decided to bring this simple, delicious Blackberry Limeade that I read about in Cooking Light.

This recipe has few ingredients and is really simple to make. You’ll need blackberries, water, lime juice, sugar and ice. Pretty easy! One alteration that I made was adding some Lime La Croix for a little fizz.

I didn’t add alcohol to the full pitcher, but you can easily add a splash of vodka to your glass to make it a fun summer cocktail.  It’s so sweet and refreshing and the color is really vibrant.

You should also check out my Watermelon Water  – maybe I’ll bring that one next time.
