• 150g blackberries
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Soda water
  • 2 limes, cut into quarters
  • 8-10 mint leaves
  • Crushed ice
  • Blackberry to serve
  • Cinnamon stick to serve


  1. Place the blackberries, caster sugar, water and cinnamon in a pan and bring to a simmer, using the back of a wooden spoon to gently crush the berries to form a syrup. Once thickened, remove from the heat and pour into a bowl to cool.
  2. To build the drink, place 1 lime cut into quarters into a glass and muddle until the juices are released. Add in the mint leaves and 75ml of the blackberry syrup. Using a bar spoon, stir to combine. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top with soda water.
  3. Finish with a blackberry and cinnamon stick to garnish.
