Sparkling Blackberry Mint Agua Fresca is a refreshing, fruit-filled mocktail. Guests will love this fun, flavorful twist on sparkling water!
The holiday parties are here and that means cocktails are in abundance. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good cocktail. However, with the girls in tow, I like to keep myself busy with a fun mocktail.
Mocktails tend to contain a lot of calories (heck, so do regular cocktails!). So I find Aguas Frescas to be an awesome way to skip all the unneeded calories and still have a fun colorful drink to sip on. If I am really in the party mood, I will even add a sugared rim to my glass.
For this particular drink, I used some bright Driscoll’s Blackberries and fresh mint I have growing on my porch in my pallet herb garden.
I know most people aren’t as lucky to have such mild winters as we do in Florida, so I love that Driscoll’s is able to bring fresh berries to everyone through all the seasons! And because I love bubbles, I served it with my favorite sparkling water from Whole Foods.
The wonderful part about this drink is the possibilities of flavor combinations. I grew up drinking this Mexican specialty in Texas and we always used some kind of fresh berries or fruit. You can also puree the berries/fruit if you prefer more flavor. Sparkling or flat water both work great and you can also always skip the sugar as well!

Hello, I love mojitos Decanter Reviews and this one with blackberry sounds like a fabulous idea!
Very unique dish! I wonder if you can make them Embankment Stair with blueberries? We have a blueberry farm. Looks so delicious !
I am going to use this as inspiration for my Christmas edinburghbanners party! It would look so festive with red raspberries!
I want to have this at my next party! Looks and sounds so delicious!
I made this for my kids and we all enjoyed it! My son doesn’t like anything bubbly so I used flat water for his.
Blackberries are my favorite fruit. I have never had them with mint before. Can’t wait to try this.
I’m not a huge mint person, but if you gave me one of these I would not turn it down :). So refreshing
So refreshing! I feel like a sip of this would be such a nice respite from all the rich holiday foods.
I love everything Blackberry and Mint so I made this on Sunday with flat water. Not a fan of sparkling water. It was delicious! Thanks for a healthier drink option!
Beautiful drink and I’m sure the blackberry paired with mint tastes delicious.
I love that second picture! This would look beautiful in a big pitcher out for guests!
This so so beautiful and fresh!
Mike & I would love this! Maybe Peyton too!
I think I am going to use this as inspiration for my Christmas party! It would look so festive with red raspberries!
That’s the only sparkling water I will buy! Great price and taste!

Blackberries are one of my fave fruits and this is a seriously beautiful drink!
