Y'all — my mint is going crazy this year. We pulled up most of it last year thinking it wasn't going to grow back. During the spring as we were checking out our flower beds and making plans for what herbs we were going to plant, we discovered one small mint plant had survived.

My daughter planted it in a pot all by itself and now you should see it! It's completely taking over that one pot.

Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow, but you have to really keep it maintained or it will take over everything. We have used it to make other meals and drinks like my Mocktail Mojitos, and I recently used it with watermelon and feta (which was SO good!)

Today I am sharing a delicious Blackberry Mint Spritzer. The flavors pair so well together. When you add just a little Sprite Zero to the mix you get a thirst quenching flavor.

How to Make Blackberry Mint Spritzer

For starters, you need to make a Mint Simple Syrup. This is as easy as boiling 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar. Add a bunch of mint leaves as that will heighten the flavor of the simple syrup.

Then in your Nutra Ninja, add the simple syrup and about 1 cup of blackberries (more if you want a deeper blackberry flavor).

Blend until you get it all blended together.

Now, run it through a fine mesh strainer to remove any seeds. Pour into a mason jar glass and top it off with Sprite Zero. Top it off with extra blackberries and a sprig of mint for a beautiful effect.

I haven't tried growing mint at home. It sounds like a great plant for the porch. Fresh mint sounds so refreshing and would be tasty in so many drinks.

This drink sounds tasty too. I haven't tried moscow mules and think it is about time.

So cool that you are growing your own mint and can just grab a bunch whenever you need to use it. The drink looks so refreshing!
