When it comes to warm weather celebrations, I am all about the fresh fruit cocktail (or mocktail!) Today is no exception which is why I’ve created this Blackberry Ginger Smash with Thyme to celebrate the Surprise Virtual Baby Shower for my friend Taylor of Greens & Chocolate. She’s expecting a baby BOY next month and I couldn’t be more excited for her!

Blueberries from Market - The Lemon Bowl

As you know, we get pretty serious about produce season here in Michigan. Once the weather finally heats up, we are knee-deep in fresh fruit until winter rolls around.

Whether it’s strawberries, peaches, watermelon or blackberries, you will find me muddling them with fresh herbs and turning them into a fun drink. Since this is a baby shower I decided to keep it alcohol-free but the sweet berries, spicy ginger beer and fragrant thyme would pair perfectly with gin, vodka or rum.

Cheers to you and your growing family Taylor! I wish you all the best as you begin this exciting new chapter of life! Boys are the BEST!

Your straw is waiting.

    I feel like I am “out of touch”. What is ginger beer? The drink sounds delicious!

      It’s like gingerale but more of a “kick” you can find it by club soda / tonic water / margarita mixer. :)
