Ingredients:

    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).

    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.

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

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