Blackberry Pom Smash

This is the drink for when you want your champagne but really need those antioxidants.

Does drinking champagne undo the goodness of pureed blackebrries, raspeberries and pomegranates?

I really don’t want to know.

Pull out your high speed blender, throw in a bunch of berries, pomegranate seeds, a teaspoon or more of sugar, 2 mint leaves and give it a whirl. Add to a glass crushed ice, pour in the berry puree and top with those bubbles.

Cheers!

It’s the weekend.

Enjoy!
