Blackberry Ginger Spritz

2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce gin (we use St. George Botanivore or Venus Blend No. 1)
2 tablespoons blackberry jam
1 tablespoon fresh ginger juice
Splash of sparkling wine, hard cider or water
Slice of lime

Combine the lime juice, gin, blackberry jam and ginger juice in a highball glass. Stir well to combine. Add ice, then top with the sparkling beverage of choice. (Alternately, mix the drink in a cocktail shaker or Mason jar, then strain the liquid over the ice into the serving glass to remove the fruit pulp before topping with bubbles of choice). Garnish with a lime wheel. Serve with a straw, if desired. Serves 1.
