Blackberry Peach Crush

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Today is the last day of Brunch Week, and what an awesome week it's been!  I'm wrapping things up with a cocktail, because I sure could use one (or two)!  I surveyed our supply of alcohol, and right now we are overrun with vodka.  We had a great crop of blackberries last year, and I stockpiled some of them in the freezer, so I pulled them out to defrost.

A traditional vodka crush uses simple syrup, but why not kick it up a level by using a flavored one?  I went back and forth between Torani peach or mango, but in the end, peach won out.  I'm thinking the mango will be great with the blueberries I also have stashed in the freezer.

This is a pretty simple cocktail.  You just place some berries in the bottom of your glass, add the syrup and muddle them together.  Add in vodka, lemon juice, and ice.  Top with seltzer to taste, and stir.  I made mine in screw top jars, because I wanted to use these adorable Sweets & Treats jar lids and straws.  This is a perfect "sit on the patio and sip while reading a book" type of drink!

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
