The recipe was inspired by Eat Love Drink's blueberry French 75. I had leftover champagne from my first birthday weekend, and we had grabbed blackberries at the farmers market, so I made my own adjustments!
To make 1 drink you'll need:
- A handful or two of blackberries
- Juice from half a lemon
- 1 oz (or a shot) of gin
- 3 oz champagne
Obviously I'm very classy and used only the best champagne & gin. But seriously, I'm a girl on a budget!
Muddle your berries in a pint glass (or shaker which I only realized later we had). Muddle them just a bit to release some of the juices. I muddled a little too much the first time, but I perfected it on my second round. Add your gin, lemon juice, & ice. Shake or stir gently. Add your champagne & pour into your glass.
Super easy! Hope you take time to make my summer cocktail before fall sneaks up on us! Cheers!
