Highs and Lows

April started out as a doozy and I have been anything but inspired. But today, oh today, it feels like things are picking up…if because of nothing else it feels like spring has sprung!

I now present you with a long overdue recipe.

Blackberry Gin n’ Tonics (serves 4)


  • 12 blackberries
  • 20 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 lemons
  • 12 ounces gin (or vodka)
  • tonic water
  • ice



  • Set out four glasses
  • Place 3 blackberries, 5 mint leaves, juice of ½ lemon
  • Fill each glass with ice, followed by 3 ounces of gin
  • Muddle the ingredients using a fork
  • Add tonic water, stir and serve


“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything. ”

– William Shakespeare
