  • 1/4 cup Wish Farms blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Wish Farms blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 to 8 mint leaves
Drink
  • 6 ounces berry syrup

Directions

  • Divide 1/4 cup Wish Farms blueberries and 1/4 cup Wish Farms blackberries among 9 to 12 ice cube compartments. Fill with water and freeze.
  • To make syrup, bring 1/4 cup Wish Farm blueberries, 1/4 cup Wish Farm blackberries, sugar and water to a boil whisking constantly to dissolve sugar.
  • Remove from heat and add mint. Mash berries and mint together in the syrup. Cool for about 30 minutes for flavors to mix.
  • Run cooled syrup through a fine mesh strainer. Discard mash.
  • Gently stir together syrup, wine, lime and Sambuca.
