Why you’ll love this fruity lemonade

There are so many cocktails made with strawberries or blueberries but blackberries often get forgotten in the mix.

That’s a shame because they are one of the easiest fruits to use in cocktails thanks to their subdued flavors and relatively low cost (compared with other berries). 

If you have ever grown your own blackberries, you’ll know that they are almost a weed and will grow and over your garden in no time.

They are also one of the easiest fruits to grow, even if you don’t have a green thumb, trust me when I say you too can grow and abundance of blackberries.
