Blackberry Smash

Wild blackberries are so much sweeter and juicier than their store-bought counterparts. In Northern California, you’ll see them growing wild on the side of the road. I grabbed some bowls, gathered wild berries, and turned them into a simple and satisfying late-summer cocktail. If you can’t find wild berries or some farm-fresh ones at a roadside stand or farmers market, you will probably need to add a little sugar to this recipe.

Apricot Fizz

If you’re loving the summer farmers market as much as we are, this is a drink for you! Apricots in the store are often hard and sour.

We used the homemade cherry bitters from this recipe. It’s a super-easy recipe, but you can definitely substitute store-bought cherry bitters. If you use commercial cherry bitters or another type of bitters, such as Angostura, be aware that they will be a little stronger and so you will … Read more
