Forest Fizz ( A drink for the designated driver)

The fourth of July will be here in less then a week, most likely there will be alcohol at a lot of parties and some guests should either drink responsibly or have a designated driver. The only problem is what's the the non drinker going to have? Since fresh fruit is in season and it's used it in a lot of classic cocktails why not try the Forest Fizz. Both adults and kids alike can have this tasty drink and not feel like they're missing out. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

The Forest Fizz

One handful of fresh blueberries
One handful of fresh blackberries
6 - 8 raspberries
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1 tsp powdered sugar
top off with club soda.

Place the berries in a blender with the lemon juice. Sprinkle the sugar over the berries, blend until smooth and strain with a strainer into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with club soda and garnish with selection of berries on a cocktail stick and serve with a straw.
