Margarita Night turned to Vodka Cocktail Night: Recipe!

Last night my sisters, myself, my brother-in-law and my Nick got together for fish tacos, guacamole, and margaritas! Such a good time! The fish tacos turned out great, we also had some ground turkey for the hard tacos (throwback!) and some sweet potato fries done two ways (cinnamon/nutmeg route and salt/pepper route).

The margaritas were good, but not very much juice from the 5,000 limes we had. Bummer. So after one margarita each, we went to grapefruit juice/tequila/muddled blackberry cocktails. And then to vodka/berrysoda water/muddled blackberry cocktails. Here is a picture of the last one:

It was very light and refreshing! Here's what you need:

1.5 ounces (1 jigger) Vodka
Berry Sparkling water, about 4 ounces
4 Blackberries
1 tsp. Truvia/sugar/sweetener of your choice

Muddle the blackberries with the sweetener so they release their juice but aren't completely masticated. Add vodka with the berry slurry and stir. Add soda water last. You may want to add some extra sweetener to taste, we like to taste the alcohol (to stay aware of drinking tempo so as to avoid embarrassing slow falls later in the night) (that's a thing that happened to me last weekend).
