Ingredients Convert to Imperial

  • 8 - 12 fresh mint leaves
  • 3 - 4 fresh blackberries
  • 3 - 4 fresh blueberries
  • 3 - 4 fresh red raspberries
  • 1/8 cup lime juice
  • 2 - 4 tsp. Equal® Spoonful or 1- 2 packets Equal® sweetener *
  • 1 glassful (12 oz glass) of crushed ice (cubed ice will not work)
  • 1/4 cup soda water
  • 1 fresh mint sprig (for garnish)

Directions:

Carefully press mint leaves into the bottom of the glass with the back of a wooden spoon to release their oils (do not tear leaves).

Mix mint, crushed wild berries, lime juice and Equal® in a 12-ounce highball glass. Fill glass with crushed ice.

Stir well until the ice is reduced by 1/3 and then top with more crushed ice, stirring until the glass begins to frost on the outside.

Pour in soda water and stir again. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.

Variations:

Alcoholic option: Add 1 to 2 ounces light rum after step 4.

* If desired, replace Equal® with an equivalent amount of sugar.
