So how is your summer going? Are your kids back in school already? Where did the summer go anyway, it feels like it just started last week and now it’s almost over!! I am already seeing pumpkin recipes! I am so not ready…so we are going to grab all the summer berries we can get out hands on and make this light and refreshing Blackberry Moscow Mule while we still can…..

Blackberries are available year round in some parts of the country, but the prices get really crazy! So why not enjoy your Blackberry Moscow Mule while they are fresh and in season? That’s my plan. 😉

Notes: {contains affiliate links}
  • I never did find my cocktail muddler, so I bought a new muddler on Amazon.
  • I have these Copper Moscow Mule Mugs. They are holding up great, no tarnishing, and still look good in photos!
  • I used Absolute Vodka, Chamboard® Black Raspberry Liqueur, and Reed’s All Natural Jamaican Style Ginger Beer {made with sugar, not high fructose corn syrup}.
  • Did you catch that? I could not find blackberry liqueur anywhere so I used Chambord® Black Raspberry Liqueur instead. Sometimes we have to get creative!
  • If you have smaller berries, use 8 or 9…or as many as  you like.
