When it comes to easy cocktails, you can’t go wrong with fresh, seasonal fruit combined with good-quality vodka and lots of ice. For an early autumn take on the idea, Sqirl’s Jessica Koslow made us this blackberry-lemon cocktail at our latest gathering, and it was the perfect light, refreshing drink to start off the evening. (Blackberry season ends in August, so now is the perfect time to enjoy them.) Check out the full recipe below. XXJKE
