Ready in: 40 minutes

1. Crush the mint leaves in a pestle and mortar, or in a small bowl with a wooden spoon if you don’t have one.
2. Tip the crushed mint leaves into a saucepan along with the sugar and water and bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring occasionally to help the sugar melt. Once the sugar has melted, allow the mixture to boil for 3 minutes. Cool to room temperature then strain the mint out of the syrup, pressing the liquid out of the leaves as you go.
3. Next, add the blackberries and teaspoon of caster sugar into a bowl and mix together, crushing the blackberries.
4. Divide this into 4 glasses and add 2 tablespoons of the syrup and lime juice to each. Fill the glasses with ice and top with sparkling water. Garnish with any leftover mint leaves and enjoy.
