  • 1.25L (5 cups) of water
  • 220g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 250g fresh blackberries + extra to garnish
  • 6 medium limes, washed
  • 2 tsp rosewater
  • Ice, to serve

Instructions

Blackberry Rose & Lime Mocktails

  1. Make a simple sugar syrup by placing sugar and 250ml (1 cup) of water in a saucepan. Heat gently until sugar dissolves completely. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Place blackberries in food processor and process to a purée, then press through a sieve for a smooth consistency. Discard seeds.
  3. Zest one lime and juice all limes. Remove seeds as required but avoid straining the juice as the pulp adds extra flavour.
  4. In a large jug, mix together sugar syrup, blackberry purée, lime zest, lime juice and rosewater. Add remaining 1L of water, plus extra to taste if desired, and refrigerate.
  5. Serve chilled with ice. Garnish with 1-2 blackberries in each glass and a sprinkle of dried rose petals if desired.

Enjoy!
