Directions:

1. Fill cup halfway with ice

2. Add the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup and stir well

3. Slowly pour in the crème de mûre

4. Garnish with a few plump, ripe blackberries and enjoy!

For a non-alcoholic version, you can simply omit the gin and raspberry liqueur and replace with club soda and Torani’s raspberry syrup.
