Notes

You’ll need a 6-ounce container of blackberries to make the syrup, plus blackberries for muddling.  It would be best to get two packages when buying the ingredients for this cocktail

Local honey is said to help with seasonal allergies, if you’re able to find and purchase local honey definitely give it a try!  Plus it feels good to buy local.
