I made a large pitcher of this for a Super Bowl party and by halftime it was completely dry! I had to make another batch to last us through the rest of the game. I had leftover raspberries, so I used those along with the blackberries – the drink was not only delicious but gorgeous as well!
Sounds like a delicious combination with the raspberries! So glad you guys liked it :)))
