This year has certainly flown by and now it's just merely days until the new year. It's been a good year and I am excited to see what the New Year brings. I can't wait to have a festive celebration with friends and family. Since Hubs doesn't drink alcohol anymore and I am the lightest of lightweights, a refreshing spritzer is my drink of choice. When I was giving birth to both of the kids, the hospital had the most amazing spritzer that I buzzed for constantly. I wanted to recreate that with a festive twist for the New Year celebration.


Mason loves blackberries and I am a huge lime and mint fan so a Blackberry Mint Spritzer makes for a beautiful combination of flavors. It's the right amount of bubbly to cheer with and kid-friendly for my kids to enjoy as well. I picked up a few 2L bottles of original 7UP® as well as the remaining ingredients at Walmart.


Ingredients:
  • 3 cups 7UP®
  • Ice
  • 1 juiced lime
  • 1.5 cups blackberries
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • Mint leaves
  • Lime Slices

Directions:

1.  In a small pot, bring blackberries, lime juice and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat.
2.  Remove from heat and mash the berries.


3.  Pour through a sieve into a large cup or bowl.
4.  Refrigerate until cold (about 30 minutes).


5.  Add 7UP® and pour over ice.
6.  Garnish with blackberries, lime slices and mint leaves.


The clean, crisp taste of 7UP® with the sweetness of the berries makes this bubbly spritzer a favorite to toast with when the countdown begins.
