Blackberry Limeade

(originally made 5/13/2008)

Morning everyone!   Blackberries have been 'reasonable' the last few weeks, and I had bought a bunch intending to make smoothies.    This recipe caught my eye instead.   It came together very quickly and easily, and I will definitely make it again.    I think it would also be great frozen in popsicle molds or made with carbonated water!   Other reviewers on the CL site said the sugar can definitely be cut back to 3/4c and also the addition of vodka would make it a great adult beverage.
