Yesterday was a rough start to the week with the news of the tragic Las Vegas shooting. Being in the LA area, Vegas is just a 3-4 hour road trip away making it a quick getaway for many of my friends and family. Thankfully no one I’m close to was at the festival this weekend but I do know of others who did attend and the horror they witnessed. My heart and thoughts go out to all the victims, their families, and those who were injured and recovering from Sunday nights’ turn of events. It’s a sad and scary world we live in and it’s hard to wrap my head around what happened. 

On a lighter note, I don’t know about you, but it’s only Tuesday and I feel like I could use a drink. While apples may be the unofficial fruit of fall, I’m a berry lover so my go-to early fall fruit are blackberries. Muddled with basil and mixed with lime juice and ginger beer, they make a rather tasty drink.

This cocktail recipe uses Green Organic Hope Vodka, an organic, non-GMO vodka made here in California distilled in small batches. The result is an impressive, premium tasting vodka perfect for mixing up in a Bloody Mary, Greyhound or my favorite, a Moscow Mule. This week, I’m mashing up those blackberries into a delicious Blackberry Basil Moscow Mule… cheers!

  1. In a cocktail shaker or glass, muddle the blackberries and basil leaves (about 10) with the vodka. Add the lime juice and ice; shake. Add ice to each copper mug, then strain (I recommend using a mesh strainer to remove all seeds) into the mugs. Top off with ginger beer and garnish with blackberries, basil leaves and lime slices.

    The copper mugs are so nice! I really want to own some. I bet the recipe would still taste as good without the alcohol, right? Because, I don’t drink. Love blackberries!

    I am probably the biggest fan of Moscow Mules that you’ll ever meet. There’s just something about that strong, ginger taste that I love! I’ll have to try this recipe next!

    My parents ADORE moscow mules and they’re coming up to my place this weekend, so I think we’re just going to have to try this one out! They look delicious and beautiful!
