Much Too Hot

It is hot.  It is worse than that, actually.  It is hot AND sticky outside.  When the thermometer reaches triple digits it's never a good thing.  It is much too hot to do nearly any outdoor activity.  And, regrettably, it is much to hot to bake.  There have been no baked breakfast goodies to munch on in the morning and no cupcakes for after dinner.  It is quite unfortunate.

Fortunately, however, a cool drink can do wonders for clearing your head from these troubles.  I suggest a blackberry daiquiri mocktail.  For an extra kick of cold, put your glass in the freezer before serving your drink!


Blackberry Daiquiri Mocktail
Makes 1

5-6 large, plump blackberries
juice of 1 lime
1 oz cranberry juice
1 oz simple syrup

Muddle blackberries in a cocktail shaker.  Add rest of ingredients and shake thoroughly.  Strain to remove blackberry seeds and serve immediately.
