Blackberry Summertime Spritzer

This spritzer recipe is a skinny and refreshing twist to the popular Moscow Mule.  Blackberries are one of our favorite summertime fruits and they’re in season!  Blackberries are high in fiber (1 cup provides approximately 8 grams), vitamins A, C, and K, and the antioxidant anthocyanin, which gives them their purple hue.  You can’t go wrong muddling them into a beverage.  They add a naturally sweet and delightful flavor to our summertime spritzer.   



(1 serving)

  • 4-5 blackberries
  • 1/2 c ice
  • 1 part ginger beer
  • 2 parts club soda
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced (we prefer lemon but lime will do just fine)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 sprig mint

*For an adult drink, add 1 shot of Ketel One Citroen.


1. In a cocktail glass or copper mug, muddle blackberries to preferred consistency.

2. Add the following ingredients as listed (ice, ginger beer, club soda, fresh lemon juice, and honey). 

3. Stir, top with a sprig of mint, and serve.           

~Cheers to Skinny Summertime Spritzers!
