YAY! We made through an entire week of summer with the kids crying “I’m bored” only  6 times this week. Yippeee….

A good drink and Netflixing is well deserved! I think ….

Muddle 5 blackberries, sugar and some grated ginger in a small glass, until the berries are crushed well and sugar is dissolved. Thawed frozen blackberries can be easily substituted. Though we can now find fresh berries in all grocery stores throughout the year. What’s up with that?

Add lemon juice, muddle once and strain into a serving glass and top with seltzer water and ice. Serve for the little ones hanging around your kitchen 😊

Now, top with vodka to kick it up a notch and CHILL!
