When, and if, I ever have a few fresh berries sitting around leftover from a recipe it's my typical practice to toss them in with some booze for a new cocktail. Exactly what I did here.
Add a little fresh mint from the garden and you have another great summer fruit martini to enjoy at happy hour.
THE BLACKBERRY STRAWBERRY MINT MARTINI
2 Oz. Strawberry Vodka
1/2 C. Fresh Blackberries
1/2 C. Fresh Strawberries
Juice of 1/2 Fresh Lime
4 Mint Leaves
Chill your martini glass in the freezer. Combine all the ingredients with 1/2 cup of ice in a blender and mix until slushy but smooth. Pour into your chilled martini glass and garnish with a fresh strawberry, a few blackberries and a sprig of mint.
