Poor Man’s Blackberry and Meyer Lemon Gin and Tonics

Are you ready for a lip-smacking luscious libation to celebrate that end of the, er, day? Hooray! Well done! Let’s have a drink already.

So, as you may have guessed, I was checking out Pinterest and found a foodgasm-worthy photo of Blackberry and Meyer Lemon Gin and Tonics as originally published by SpoonForkBacon.

I mean just look at this image:

Tangent: I wonder if people came to my blog if I named it after two utensils and a food I like to eat: SporkChopstickTofu. Hmmm, probably not.

Let’s continue, shall we?


  •  * Gin
  •  * Club Soda
  • * Meyer Lemon
  • * Frozen berries
  • * Basil, if you have it
  • * An appreciation for tasty drinks


  • * Pour the frozen berries and with a muddler, you guessed it!, muddle them like you were a gangster with a shiny new pair of brass knuckles. 
  • * Pour your gin.
  • * Pour your club soda.
  • * Thinly slice the lemons and put in to your tumbler glass.
  • * Add the basil if you happen to have some.
  • * Cheers!

If you clicked through to SpoonForkBacon’s site you will admire (and maybe be a little jealous) of her use of Photoshop to create a very tasteful animated gifs to illustrate the fizzy bubbles.

Oh yeah? We’ve got GifBoom here.
