Fun Water Recipe: Blackberry Mint

Eats & Treats
Comments Off on Fun Water Recipe: Blackberry Mint

If you are like me and you crave mojitos in the summer time (well let’s be honest, all year round) then this recipe is for you. I wanted to recreate the mojito flavour for my fun water recipe this week and I must say, it turned out pretty darn great!

At first I was a little worried that because I am not using sparkling water or soda that it would taste too flat, but to my surprise it was super flavourful and tasted magnificent!

simply perfect water recipe with lots of flavour blackberry mint lime mix

Here is what you need: (per glass)

• one glass of water
• small handful of blackberries (about ten)
• three or four wedges of lime
• 5-10 mint leaves depending on taste

I placed the mint, lime and blackberries in my glass, grabbed a fork and muddled the berries and mint until the berries were almost all liquid. This step is key to releasing the flavours, however the blackberries have a lot of seeds, so if you do not want them in your drink I would suggest muddling the berries in a small hand strainer over your glass instead.

Once you have the three key ingredients, add your water, ice and style with a fancy straw to make it nice. (*side note: I used half a lime in my drink and found the lime flavour to be pretty powerful, I did still like it but would recommend just a few wedges instead)

Enjoy!

  • We got the photos done but failed at ordering any cards, I feel like I might not be the only one behind on that note this year.. we’ve only received one holiday card so far (.... or maybe that means something else 🤣🤭) haha!! Were you on the ball and got your cards out or are you on my side still contemplating if there’s enough time??
  • My mother-in-law made all these wreaths from grape vines she grew in her garden, I added a little greenery. Super simple, super cute!

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.
