I’m not a big drinker of alcohol, but I am an appreciator of a finely crafted cocktail. I am not a big maker of cocktails, because I do not possess the talents to do so, nor…do I want to spend the money on alcohol. Ha! After the first time I made French maracons on my own, I immediately appreciated why they often cost about $3 a pop; this is the same logic as to why I don’t mind paying $18 for someone else to make me a thoughtful cocktail, because I can appreciate the effort that goes into it.
A mocktail though? The concept is a little less intimidating to me. (And a lot cheaper without buying that extra alcohol.)
Blackberry season is fast approaching, and I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my drink. Vanilla and mint always complement each other well, and these two flavors complement blackberries well, so could I have picked a better trifecta?
