Tropical Blackberry Float
Simply put – This. Is. Delicious! You will wish you didn’t eat so much for dinner when you try this Tropical Blackberry Float. It is refreshing, packed full of flavor and like a little tropical party right in your mouth (You just might go back for seconds).   Let’s get started with the homemade blackberry syrup:
Rinse the berries and place them over medium heat in a small sauce pan on the stove.  Add the water and sugar and bring to a boil.  Once the mixture has come to a boil, mash about half of the berries but leave some whole.  Cook until sauce thickens then remove from heat to cool.  In a tall glass, with the sherbet and Sprite already in it – drizzle sauce over top.

Don’t let the simple step of making homemade blackberry syrup stop you from trying this.  I guarantee you will thank me later and realize very quickly that it only takes a few minutes to simmer down the berries to make a wonderful thick syrup that will mix into this drink in unimaginable ways.

Get ready for the party in your mouth because this is a drink that everyone will enjoy!

TIP: You can switch it up a bit by using raspberry sherbert and raspberry syrup.  The possibilities are endless.
