This cocktail combines fresh blackberries, cucumber slices, lime juice, gin, club soda, sugar, and fresh mint for an ultra-summery, fruity escape.

Step 1

Place first 5 ingredients in a large pitcher. Gently press mint leaves, cucumbers, and blackberries against side of pitcher with a wooden spoon to release flavors. Stir in gin and club soda. Serve over ice. Garnish, if desired.

Bad recipe

Worst cocktail ever.  Way too much lime juice, way too little sugar and one CUP of of club soda? Really? How does that equate to 5 cups? Without a proper muddler, the ingredients end up mashed and can't pour into a glass without a strainer. Yuck!

Very refreshing! BUT, needs to be strained into the glass or it looks unattractive.

Delicious! Such a great summer cocktail. I used the minimum amount of sugar, no need for more. I don't think there's any need to strain the drink, looks very appealing as is in the glass. Will make this all summer long and I don't even like gin.
