Blackberry Sour + Gin Cocktail


So typically most of the drink combinations I make on here are vodka or champagne based. Occasionally some rum will sneak in there, but I don't change it up too much. When I found this Rachael Ray recipe though I decided it was time to go out and snag a little gin to test it out. I altered Rachael's recipe slightly though because I am not a massive ginger fan. I can only take teeni, tiny amounts (aka so small you basically cannot taste it) so I knew that portion of the drink just wasn't for me. I followed her other steps for the most part and really loved the combination. The blackberry was sweet and the fresh squeezed lemon toned down the sugar and gave it a little kick. Also-anything that has club soda or a little fizz is perfect in my book. Making simple syrups (plain or infused with a flavor) has been one of my favorite things to do lately so I really enjoyed creating the blackberry syrup.
 
What is your favorite base for a cocktail? I'm sure this would taste equally as good with vodka or as a non-alcohol drink categorized as a "fizzy lemonade"!
