There are so many variations on this recipe, it was a toss of the coin as to which one to start from. Most used coconut milk and pineapple juice for a light effect, but I think the ice has the same effect, and cools it down even further.
The shredded coconut garnish was a little distracting, when drinking from the glass, but the straw would have fixed that. Mind you, Millie said the garnish was the best part, so it’s definitely got to stay, even if it’s just for the looks.
Muddle together the blackberries, honey, and mint until very well blended.
Add the lemon juice and water, cover, and shake to mix.
Strain the mixture into two glasses with ice
Top each glass with 1 cup of soda water
Garnish with blackberries and mint leaves

I almost followed the instructions, muddled everything together in a steel bowl, so that I had more room, instead of the shaker. In hindsight, using a shaker would have worked better, getting all of the flavours together. But it looked pretty.
