This cocktail has a lot of really great health benefits! Blackberries are packed with antioxidants, manganese and vitamin C. Cynar has the health benefits of artichoke; or so it was believed when it was create! By combining these two ingredients together I present you with a Health Elixir! It’s fruity and refreshing with a lightly bitter finish. It’s not a sweet cocktail, since too much sugar certainly isn’t good for your health.
In a shaker :
muddle 2 blackberries and a leaf of basil. Add
- 2oz vodka ( I used Absolut Elyx )
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 0.75 oz simple syrup
- 0.5 oz Cynar
Add ice and briefly shake. Strain over crushed ice into double old fashioned glass. Garnish with a blackberry and basil leaf.
