Blackberries are in and they are in abundance in my yard. Almost everyday here in July is good for blackberry picking. Well that makes for some great blackberry cocktails. These Blackberry Lime Daiquiris are no exception to that rule.
Now if you are using the wild blackberries like I am I would suggest running the juice through a strainer to remove the seeds. Blackberries are limitless when it comes to flavor however their seeds are not so great in a scrumptious cocktail. By the way the wild ones have so much more flavor than there domesticated friends.
The dark blue color ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits. So go ahead and treat yourself to one of natures finest fruits. You deserve a little rest and relaxation every now and then. You have earned it!
