Skinny Blackberry Ginger Tonic

We put a refreshing summer spin on the classic gin and tonic cocktail with our yummy and skinny recipe! With seasonal fresh fruit, diet tonic, some good gin and a splash of ginger liqueur, we have a delicious summer cocktail that's perfect for back porch sipping!

We used fresh blackberries, which are ripe and juicy in the summertime, and smooth Barrow’s Ginger Liqueur to really crank up this drink’s flavor! This cocktail is so low-calorie because we just used fresh (and seasonal!) blackberries for a rich flavor, some lime juice and diet tonic water, which adds some fizzy carbonation and complements the gin and ginger liqueur nicely.



Who knew that muddled blackberries created such a beautiful color? We don't recommend muddling up the berries near anything too valuable because they will stain! But the resulting juice and flavor is totally worth it. Mix up this refreshing and yummy cocktail this summer for a relaxing outdoor happy hour. Perfect for the back deck, front porch or a rooftop! 



  • 10 fresh blackberries (6 to muddle, 4 to garnish)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced, plus slices for garnish
  • 3 ounces gin
  • 3 Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur
  • 1 1/2 cups diet tonic water
  • Ice

Add the 6 blackberries to a cocktail shaker. Squeeze in lemon juice, and muddle together with a muddler or the back of a spoon.

After the blackberries are muddled and juiced nicely, pour in the gin and ginger liqueur, stirring to mix completely.

Fill two cocktail glasses with 3/4 cup of ice. Strain the cocktail mixture over the ice, making sure the blackberry seeds aren't poured in.

Pour diet tonic water to the top of the glass. Garnish with blackberries and a lemon slice.
