Ingredients
  • 1 pint blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped mint leaves
  • 8 ounces gin
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • Ice, for serving
  • 24 ounces ginger ale
  • 1 pint blackberry sorbet or vanilla ice cream
Directions

Heat the blackberries, sugar, and water in a small pot over medium-high heat. While warming, smash with a potato masher, until a thick even consistency is reached, about 8 minutes.

Pour the blackberries through a sieve, into a bowl, pushing some flesh through with the juices, making sure to catch the seeds. Cool in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

Fill a cocktail shaker with 2 tablespoons of blackberry puree, 2 tablespoons of the mint leaves, 2 ounces of gin, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and a handful of ice. Shake vigorously 5 to 6 times until the drink is ice cold. Strain the mixture into a tall glass. Top with 6 ounces of ginger ale and stir lightly. Repeat for the remaining 3 servings. Finish and serve with a scoop of sorbet or ice cream.
