I put a new spin on this classic cocktail by incorporating fresh blackberries to provide natural sweetness while simultaneously upping the nutrition ante. Made with just 5 simple ingredients, this delish libation clocks in under 200 calories and contains 5 whopping grams of filling fiber. Plus, the blackberries provide a nice dose of vitamin C, brain-boosting antioxidants…and a built-in snack. Cheers to superfood cocktails!
