Vodka Blackberry Breeze Cocktail
2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
3-4 ounces ginger beer
sugar, for dusting the rim
lime wedge, for garnish
blackberries, for garnish
Place some sugar on a small plate. Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of a lowball cocktail glass or (jam jar for a more casual feel). Dip the class into the sugar to coat. Fill with crushed ice and set aside.
Using a cocktail shaker, add the blackberries and using a muddler, muddle the berries until well smashed. Add the vodka and lime juice and shake vigorously. Add mixture to the prepared glass.
Top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge and a few blackberries.
