Sparkling Blackberry Limeade

Nothing is more refreshing than a glass of lemonade in the summer heat. Of course my favorite is Brazilian Lemonade. This drink is also very refreshing & lovely. I am a sucker for limes, so I will take any excuse to use them especially for limeade. So here is to a fun summer with relaxing times!

Sparkling Blackberry Limeade

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups fresh or frozen-thawed blackberries (Use whatever you have, I had 2 cups of frozen that I thawed & still had a nice flavor.)
  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3/4-1 cup sugar (Depending on how sweet you want it; I used 3/4 cup)
  • 1 QT club soda

Instructions

  1. Blend blackberries with 1 cup of water in a food processor/blender & strain seeds through mesh strainer into a pitcher. Discard seeds. Add additional 1 cup of water, lime juice & sugar to the strained berries. Stir until sugar dissolves.
  2. Just before serving, add chilled club soda slowly to prevent too much foaming. Stir lightly, if at all. Serve immediately.
