Blackberry Sour

Sweet blackberries simmered down and shaken to perfection with egg whites then topped up with SodaStream sparkling water for a silky, delicious cocktail that everyone will love! SO easy and so delish - plus look at that gorgeous frothy bubbly top! - Melanie Lionello @FromMyLittleKitchen


  • 10 Blackberries
  • 2 Tbs Sugar
  • Juice of one Lemon
  • 2 Egg whites
  • Ice
  • 60mL Gin
  • Sparkling water


        1. Place blackberries, sugar and lemon into a small saucepan and heat on a low heat.
        2. While it’s beginning to heat up, squash the blackberries with a muddler and stir them around. Heat for about 5 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the syrup is dark purple in colour and begins to thicken to a syrup.
        3. Remove from heat and then strain through a tea strainer and let it cool completely.
        4. Once cool, add the syrup to a cocktail shaker or small blender along with egg whites, ice and gin.
        5. Shake vigorously or blitz for 20-30 seconds then pour equally into two glasses and top up with sparkling water.
        6. Enjoy!
