This vodka sour is perfectly sweet and tart with a smooth finish. Made with a homemade blackberry ginger syrup, this drink is so flavorful and so easy to make!


Blackberry Ginger Syrup

  • 1 cup (150g) fresh blackberries (or thawed frozen berries)
  • 1 inch nub of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (118g) water

Blackberry Ginger Vodka Sour (1 drink)

  • 2 oz vodka (also tastes great with mezcal!)
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 oz blackberry ginger syrup
  • 2 dashes aromatic bitters
  • 1 large egg white (or 1 oz aquafaba)


Blackberry Ginger Syrup

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir and heat until the blackberries start to bleed their color and become tender.
  3. At this point, use a potato masher and mash up the blackberries into a chunky pulp.
  4. Once mashed, allow the mixture to bubble for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Remove from heat and run the syrup through a mesh strainer over a glass container, pressing out the seeds and pulp to leave you with a clear blackberry syrup.
  6. Refrigerate the syrup for at least an hour before making a cocktail.
