Blackberry moscow mule

Blackberries! The berry season is still booming, but summer is winding down, so this week's Saturday Sipper celebrates some of these sweet gems. Big and juicy, blackberries are delicious when smashed with sugar and combined with a Moscow Mule.

1 cup or so of blackberries
1-2 tablespoons sugar 
3 shots Vodka  
1 can of ginger beer
6 blackberries and 2 mint sprigs for garnishing

In a large bowl muddle blackberries, sugar and vodka until berries are mashed and smooth. Set aside. Fill 2 tall glass with ice and fill each glass halfway with ginger beer. Tilt glass and gently pour in blackberry mixture until glass is full. Garnish with a skewer of the additional blackberries and a sprig of mint. Sip slowly, and saver these last few weeks of summer.

Makes two berry-licious cocktails!
