I came across this drink recipe on smitten kitchen and I am determined to try it out. Thought I'd share it with all of you as well!
Blackberry Gin Fizz
For two drinks
1/4 cup fresh blackberries
2 tbsp splenda
1/2 cup (just shy of 3 shots) gin
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (freshly squeezed)
2 Springs sweet basil or thin lime wedges (for garnish)
Purée blackberries and splenda in a blender. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve or tea strainer into two tall glasses; discard seeds in sieve. Divide gin and lime juice between glasses and stir. Add ice to glasses and top them off with soda and a sprig of basil or wedge of lime.
