This Blackberry Smash is a simple, yet refreshing cocktail. It’s one of my favorite simple cocktail recipes.
There is nothing like a refreshing cocktail to help you unwind or celebrate. I love to order fancy, complicated cocktails at restaurants but when I’m home, it’s all about simplicity.
This simple cocktail recipe would be perfect for impromptu get togethers. You know, those times when you decide, spur of the moment, to have some friends over. When you’re up against the clock to get things ready, this cocktail will save the day.
It’s sparkly, crispy and I just love the purple color.
It really doesn’t get much easier than this Blackberry Smash. It’s definitely one of my favorite simple cocktail recipes.
The recipe starts with Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale® and then I add some Svedka Vodka.
I’ve never seen Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale® before so I was completely intrigued. I love anything with berries. I found it in the soda aisle at my local Walmart.
If you’re having a big group, it’s easy to make a pitcher of this Blackberry Smash. It’s a fun way to help keep spring bubbly!
