The Berry Cobbler
Although bubbly buckles and crumbles are ubiquitous at warm-weather barbecues, we haven't seen too many cocktails that capture the sweet/tart taste of summer berries. That's why this spiked blueberry/strawberry smoothie is so refreshing (it also has a few splashes of orange and pineapple juices, Jamaican rum and the coconut cream Coco López). While Kim Haasarud, author of 101 Tropical Drinks and founder of a beverage consultancy suggests using 3/4 cup of ice, you can use less if you want your drink more liquid-y, or more, if you prefer it on the slushier side.
