Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, mash the 1/12 pints berries with sugar; let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup water, then strain into a large pitcher, pressing with the spoon to extract any juice. Stir in the lemon juice and 2 1/2 cups more water.
  2. Fill 8 pint glasses halfway with ice. Pour about 3/4 cup berry-lemon mixture into each glass. Top with a splash of seltzer and stir to combine. Garnish with berries and a mint sprig.
