Ingredients

  • 1

    pint blackberries

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

  • 1/2

    cup roughly chopped fresh mint

  • 8

    ounces gin

  • 1/4

    cup fresh lime juice

  • 1

    24 -ounce bottle ginger ale

  • 1

    pint vanilla ice cream or blackberry sorbet

Directions

Heat the blackberries, sugar and 1 tablespoon water in a small pot over medium heat, smashing the berries with a potato masher, until thick, about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a bowl, pushing the juice through with a rubber spatula. Refrigerate until cold, at least 10 minutes. Fill a cocktail shaker with 2 tablespoons of the blackberry juice, 2 tablespoons mint, 2 ounces gin, 1 tablespoon lime juice and a handful of ice. Shake vigorously until the drink is ice cold, 5 or 6 times. Strain into a tall glass. Top with ginger ale and stir lightly. Repeat to make 3 more drinks. Top each with a scoop of ice cream.
