Thirsty Thursday is back!

What a crappy friend I’ve been, huh? Poor Nicole has been drinking all alone every Thursday while I’ve been in my blogging funk. But no worries, something about summer being on the horizon makes me excited for cocktails! I’m ready to share some great ones!

Nicole stuck with a berry theme this month so we kept it up with blackberries this week. I’m really not a big blackberry fan. No, that’s a lie. I love blackberry flavor – like syrup – but I hate blackberry seeds. Blech. This drink was right up my alley because the blackberries are muddled so all the juices get released and the seeds, for the most part, stay at the bottom of the glass. On top of the blackberries is vodka and lemonade. Yuuum. Is there a better combination than lemonade with any kind of berries? It’s delicious! Very refreshing and would be perfect for a day spent by the pool.

Nicole made Blackberry Margaritas!

The Seductive Swan
  • 5 blackberries
  • ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 3 ounces lemonade
  1. Muddle 4 of the blackberries in a glass. Add ice. Pour vodka and lemonade over the ice. The blackberries will stay at the bottom but you can stir it up (or shake) if you want. Garnish with the last blackberry.
