Monday Mocktails: Refreshing Blackberry Lemonade with Rosemary

Hello Everyone. Thank you for stopping by and checking out our little nook of the web. There are so many changes going on right now in my life and sadly I have had little time to post. I moving this week and next week I start a new job. It's a bitter sweet change but with the new job I'll have mornings to work on the shop and the site. I have some very exciting things planned for the business. I hope all goes well. I've been working so hard to prepare for this change. I cant wait to get back into a regular rhythm of posting again. I miss you all and I miss being creative. Here's today's mocktail to inspire me and you... a blackberry lemonade with rosemary to garnish. It's very refreshing and quite irresistible. I can't stop thinking about how good this would be with gin, ha. I hope you enjoy it alcohol free.

Blackberry Lemonade with Rosemary
Serves 2

  • 6 Lemons
  • 1/2 Cup of Water
  • 1/4 Cup Blackberries
  • 2 Sprigs of Rosemary
  • 6 Packets of Stevia (or other sugar of choice)

  1. Make sure you wash all of the fruit. In a shaker or large glass, muddle the blackberries with the stevia and a few needles from the rosemary sprigs (this can also be done in the bottom of the serving glasses).
  2. Fill your shaker or glasses with ice.
  3. Slice and juice your lemons. Fresh juice makes a huge difference in taste. Pour your juice over the top of the blackberry mixture. 
  4. Pour in the water. This amount can be less, it all depends on how tart you like your lemonade.
  5. Stir with a spoon and garnish each with rosemary.
