This party is going to go on for long people! Till the party is on, the drinks are on! Let’s rock it!
With appetizers and bite size goodies, drinks are must. Though I would have loved to spike this TGIF inspired drink with vodka and gin, but kept it alcohol free for my friends who stay away from the goodies of sinful ;).
I promise to bring a cocktail later to the party and that too a gorgeous one! A super cooler!
Here is a big hurrah and a grand cheer to the successful 1 year of Fiesta Friday! Love you guys! Keep rocking it!
Let’s get the party started!
Serves : 2
Kitchen Equipments Required : Food processor, stirrer, 2 tall glasses, chopping board, knife.
Blackberries : 10-12. Use mulberries if blackberries not available. You may use frozen ones too.
Sugar : 1/2 tbsp
Lemon juice : 2 tbsp
Tonic water & Ginger-ale
Lemon slices for garnish and on the side.
- Put black berries & sugar in the food processor and purée. Add lemon nice to it. Set aside.
Take 2 tall glasses. Fill them half way with crushed ice.
Pour equal quantity of blackberry purée to both the glasses. Top with equal quantity of tonic water and ginger-ale. Stir and serve chilled with lemon slices on the side.
Yes, simple pleasures of life are that simple. Cheers and enjoy with friends and family!
I hope the co-host lovely ladies Hilda and Chef Juliana like my plate of appetizers :).
That is such a beautiful drink Sonal! As someone who has downed quite a few long island ice teas, I love the idea of a non-alcoholic one for a change & such a pretty one too 😀
Pretty drink Sonal and a perfect thirst quencher with all of these yummy appetizers 🙂
Thanks Aunt Juju 🙂

I love blackberries-this sounds yummy!
Love the colour of this cocktail Sonal, just beautiful!
Gorgeous mock-tail Sonal – looks stunning and the flavour combinations sound fabulous! I’m off to find Julianna and spike it with a little vodka – it’s a pardee after all!!
Absokutely! Slike with vodka and a hint of gin 😉
I love the color of crushed blackberries. Perfect drink tonight, Sonal!
Yay Anjana 🙂
I’ll take a double shot of vodka in mine please Sonal :). Love the blackberries. I’m so glad someone thought of music, and salsa to boot!! My favorite, love to dance 🙂
Ooh this looks so yummy Sonal, it doesn’t even need alcohol! And now I don’t even have to feel bad about helping myself to another cocktail!!
This drink is perfect for a teetotaler like me at this party! What an awesome looking refreshment! Happy FF Sonal!
Okay I don’t drink but the photographs of these cocktails are phenomenal . . . I love the dark colors and the jewel tones. Fabulous and festive. Now everybody go get drunk on them!
Looks gorgeous! Blackberries and lemon are such a great combination. The party is rocking, I like how you set the mood. 🙂
I was wondering when someone was going to bring out the drinks! Thanks so much for making this beauty for us, Sonal! And hey, I know where Angie’s liquor cabinet is, for those of us who might want to make it a bit “stronger” 😉
I’m not even huge drinker, and I STILL want a nice tall glass of this. Happy Fiesta Friday 😀
You can have as much of it as you want Jess! It has no alcohol :).
So good of you to bring a drink. I was beginning to get thirsty after all the delicious appetizers I have been exposed to, and how else can we toast Angie without a drink! I had hoped to bring one myself, but it isn’t ready yet, so am more than happy to try yours.
Thanks Hilda! Though I will wait for yours! I know yours have to he exotic :).
Sounds positively delicious, Sonal! I’ll start with the alcohol-free one (it IS morning still for me after all)… but by 5:00 I think an added shot of Vodka will keep me partying on the Fiesta Friday all night. 🙂
Nancy, wait till I bring the spiked one in the evening.
Is it evening yet?? 😉
What a beautiful drink! I’ll spike mine. 🙂
Me too 😉
