Sober drink Sunday

Blackberry Lavendar sparkling mocktail (perfect for holiday toasts!)

1 tablespoon lavender flowers (dried or fresh)

1 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)

½ cup maple syrup

¼ cup white grape juice

2L bottle of 7-up (or sparkling cranberry juice or gingerale…)


Boil blackberries, maple syrup and grape juice, mashing berries gently as they cook until blackberries are broken down (about 5 minutes). Add lavender flowers (removing from stem if they are fresh) and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Optional: if time permits allow to steep for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days in fridge.

To serve: pour 1 tablespoon blackberry sauce into a champagne flute, add a stem of fresh lavender and top with chilled 7-up
