It’s Friday and time for the nearly patented brandivate beverage of the week! While summer officially starts tomorrow, the near triple degree temperatures today screams for a refreshing drink, which is why we are enjoying a Blackberry Vanilla Fizz. The full recipe (which is a collaboration between brandivate Managing Partners Kelsey Cunningham and Bill Petrie) is below but it contains homemade vanilla vodka (one bottle Pickers vodka + one split vanilla bean + one week = vanilla vodka), fresh blackberries, fresh lime juice, a smidge of simple syrup, and bubly blackberry sparkling water! It’s a light, invigorating beverage and perfect for a hot summer afternoon.
How are you celebrating the end of a productive week? #bbotw
