Simple Summer Cocktail

Hey it's almost Friday, and to celebrate I decided that a cocktail was in order.  I had frozen some blackberries earlier in the week, and the mint growing in the container out back was looking like it needed it became a "use what you've got" situation.  

Blackberry Gin Fizz

5 blackberries
juice of 1/2 lemon
2oz gin (I used Barr Hill)
ginger beer
black pepper
fresh mint 

Muddle blackberries with lemon juice in the bottom of a glass.   Add gin, ice, and top off with ginger beer.  Add a sprinkling of black pepper and a mint sprig, and you're set to welcome in the weekend!
