This Sparkling Blackberry Lemonade is hands down one of the most refreshing cocktails I have ever tasted! By combining citrus and berry flavors with a dash of prosecco, it is such a versatile drink that is perfect for a girls’ night in during the dead of winter or an outdoor dinner party in the heat of summer. I love serving a signature cocktail at the parties I host. It is a fun and festive way to start the evening and is a great way to tie in the party theme. The vision for my Galentine’s Day party was fresh and modern with a bit of a retro twist using bright colors, bold patterns and pops of lemon yellow. So of course, it was a must to come up with a fun cocktail to match!My friend Devryn offered to create a signature cocktail for the party. She decided to include citrus flavors to play off the lemon details incorporated throughout the party and added homemade blackberry simple syrup to give the cocktail a pretty pink color. We had fun testing out different recipes before the actual party, and this one was the clear winner.See below for the recipe and directions on how to make a Sparkling Blackberry Lemonade cocktail.
