Blackberry Honeybee Sparkler
1 pint fresh blackberries
1 inch section of fresh ginger root, skinned and diced
Juice of 3 lemons
Honey syrup (recipe below)
Sparkling water (or soda siphon)
Yields: 8 servings
Honey syrup: Bring 1 cup water and 1/2 cup honey to a boil, stir and remove from heat. Let cool completely and set aside.
In a blender, puree blackberries, lemon juice and fresh ginger, and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Stir in honey syrup and funnel into a soda siphon for direct carbonation and pour over ice. If you don’t have a soda siphon, pour the batch over ice and top with sparkling water, then stir and garnish with fresh blackberries and sunflower petals that have not been treated with pesticides.
