Recipe notes

● To lighten the drink up, top drink with a splash of sparkling wine or tonic water

● The strained syrup can keep for up to a week in the refrigerator so you can make the blackberry syrup in advance, keep it in an airtight container and refrigerate.

● Add a sprig or two of rosemary while it mixes for a stronger flavor

● For a fun twist, use basil instead of rosemary
