Spring is here and there is no time like the present to celebrate! It has been a long winter and if you live in my neck of the woods we have had multiple feet of snow. Gloomy skies, whipping winds and dull, drab landscapes have been the norm. But now that spring is officially here and the sun is setting later and later into the evening it is time to sit outside enjoying a Blackberry Moscow Mule Mocktail. Feel the refreshment wash over you like the sun that is bathing your face.
There are 3 ingredients in this super simple Blackberry Moscow Mule Mocktail and that INCLUDES the limited edition Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale.
Here is your Blackberry Moscow Mule Mocktail list of ingredients per drink:
- Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale
- 2 fresh blackberries
- 1/2 wedge of lime
Blackberry Moscow Mule Mocktail Garnish:
- Lime wedge
- Candied ginger
Here is a little fun fact I learned in culinary school:
The garnish on the drink should always reflect what is IN the drink.
There are muddled blackberries and lime in the drink so there is a blackberry and a lime wedge on the garnish.
But what about the candied ginger? Canada Dry™ is made with REAL ginger, therefore we have a piece of ginger on the garnish. I thought a piece of candied ginger was the perfect garnish for this drink.
Muddle the blackberries and the lime wedge in a copper cup. The copper cup is not necessary but I can guarantee you will feel just a bit more fancy if you use one (I know I do!).
Fill your glass half full with crushed ice.
Pour the Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale over the ice and muddled fruit.
Garnish with your prepared garnish.
I know you are going to love this blackberry Moscow Mule Mocktail as much as I do!
It is light, refreshing and I love the real ginger in the Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale.
Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale can be found at GIANT Food Stores but only for a limited time. How limited? Just March-May 2016.
