Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of berries
  • 4 cups of seltzer
  • 4 slices of lemon
  • 1 sprig of mint

Directions: 

Rinse your berries, place in a bowl or a tall glass, and smash them up with a muddler or mortar and pestle, until there are no more large pieces. Split berries up evenly into 4 glasses, add seltzer water. Mix it up with a spoon so that the berries mingle with the seltzer, then finish it off with a squeeze of lemon and a few mint leaves. Makes 4 delectable drinks.
