Hey everyone! My name is Rebekah Hubbard and I write the food blog PDXfoodlove. It is my first post here on Tattooed Martha, so I thought I would introduce myself a little.
I live in Portland, in a cute bungalow that is about to become a much bigger bungalow, because we are nearing completion on a basement remodel! Yay! I am an avid gardener – I actually have completed Master Gardener training. And of course, I love to eat and cook.
My food blog started in 2011 or so, when I was working a job that didn’t really stretch my creative skills. I needed an outlet. So I started writing about what my hubby and I were making for dinner. Some of my photos from those days are not great, haha. I’ve come a long way.
Lately I’ve been focusing on recipes that use the bounty of fresh produce that comes in the summer, and especially on cocktails. It’s my favorite thing to get home from a busy day and mix myself up a delicious drink. So much the better if it uses fresh fruity flavors!
Today I’m sharing a recipe that I think really shows off my favorite way to eat and drink. It’s fresh, it uses seasonal fruit, and it’s EASY. Cheers!
Here’s what you need:
1 oz. cachaça (recommended: Novo Fogo unaged)
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice (save the spent rinds!)
6-8 fresh blackberries
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Club soda, chilled
Lime wheel for garnish
In a rocks glass, muddle the cachaca, lime juice, spent lime rind, blackberries and simple syrup.
Fill the glass with ice and stir well to combine. Top with club soda and garnish with more lime!
