Blackberry Breeze Cocktail + Extras

No comments
Summer (I know it’s only spring technically) is my favorite produce season! I loooooooooove me some good ‘maters, and summer is their prime time to shine. H-E-B had some gorgeous Beefsteak Tomatoes last week, so I had to grab a few. I made a quick turkey bacon BLT, and I felt my heart go pitter-patter. I’m already dreaming about making an Heirloom Tomato Pie and maybe even some Fried Green Tomatoes. #getinmybelly

I’m currently really digging this song. To me, it’s very raw and emotional, especially considering that Jon and I are coming up on our five year anniversary (seems just like yesterday…). I’ve been hearing so many stories of couples breaking up after years and years together. Those stories and realities can really haunt you, but this song just puts a sweet tone to my day.

I recently went to a baby shower for a sweet friend, and they gave us the best party favors ever. They placed a simple, stemless wine glass in each bag. Then, they had an assortment of individual wines to choose from inside the different bags. I can always dig wine as a party favor. I went for the pink variety since my sweet friend is having her second baby girl!

They added an adorable note, too.

On Sunday, we spent all morning organizing our chaotic garage, so we decided to rest in the afternoon. Jon put on the Astros’ game on the porch, and we all just played and lounged outside. The weather was nothing short of perfect. I’ll take all the cool, breezy days I can get before the 100 degrees + humidity starts.

I just bought the cheapest 100% pineapple juice I could find, which happened to be the canned version. It cost about $2 and comes with a ton that you can put in a different container and store in the fridge.

This cocktail is citrusy, smooth, and the perfect way to end your day (or start it, whateves). If you taste it and feel like you want more sweetness, just add a dash of agave nectar and give it a stir.

Blackberry Breeze

4 blackberries
2 oz. pineapple juice
2 oz. tequila blanco
1/2 oz. lime juice
Mint, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, squeeze the blackberries with your fingers so they break apart and their juices come out. Add the pineapple juice, tequila, and lime juice. Shake until foamy (about 10 seconds). Garnish with mint.
For added sweetness, add a splash of agave nectar.
