Eating clean doesn’t mean you have to give up tasty beverages. This Blackberry-Thyme Tonic is an antioxidant packed substitute for alcoholic cocktails. It’s also a great excuse to head to a farmers’ market or a pick-your-own farm. Get your blackberries wild if you can and look for plump, dry, darkly-colored fruit that are neither too firm nor too squishy.
