I love trying fun new drinks filled with fruit and herbs in the summer. There's something so refreshing and light about a cold sparkling drink when it's hot outside. This blackberry fizz recipe is so easy to make so you can get back to grilling those pineapples in a flash.

Blackberries are a deliciously sweet fruit and are in peak season from July to August according to Livestrong.

This Blackberry Basil Fizz is a perfect summer drink. It's easy to make with ingredients that are in season right now. Add a splash of rum or make it a mocktail for the whole family to enjoy!

  • You can adjust the ingredients to your taste or use what you have on hand. Drinks are so fluid (pun intended) and can easily be changed to your preferences.
  • This is such a simple drink, you can really substitute with anything you have on hand. I would recommend blueberries in place of the blackberries, or vodka in place of the rum. If you start going outside of that, you'll create a brand new drink. Go get it!
  • This blackberry basil fizz is delicious without any alcohol with all the fruity, herby goodness throughout!
