Summertime is the perfect time to sip this Blackberry Wish Cocktail made with fresh delicious Wish Farms blackberries! I am crafting this delicious beverage as a part of the #BerryDelish contest for the Food Wine Conference that starts on May 19th.

It’s always Berry Season with Wish Farms. Can you believe they were founded in 1922 and are third-generation owned? They are a year-round supplier of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries with growing regions throughout the USA, Canada, and South America.
That’s a long time to be in the berry business! They pride themselves in Quality, Consistency, Flavor, and growing berries that are memorable.
I hope you will agree this Blackberry Wish Cocktail is memorable too! It uses muddled cream of the crop Wish Farms blackberries with a nice smooth blend of gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, Creme de Violette, Creme de Cassis, and lots of crushed ice!! Add it all to a Cocktail Shaker and shake, shake, and shake it until it’s ice cold.
Pour this deliciousness over crushed ice and top with beautiful Wish Farms Blackberries and Mint leaves. You will be “Wishing” you had another one of these Blackberry Wish Cocktails, I promise! Now take time to sip on this while you enjoy the summer breeze!
