We blinked and blackberry season was over. We loved having a cooler spring, but apparently the fruit crops didn’t. This drink was inspired by one we’ve had on our cocktail board on Pinterest for some time. The original from Spoon Fork Bacon used Meyer lemons, but we do love our limoncello. Hopefully you folks in more northern climes have berries still.
