Fill out the Feast: Blackberry Punch

  • 12 ounces fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 can (2-liter) Sprite

Heat the sugar and water, just until the sugar is dissolved. Puree the blackberries with the sugar water, then put the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Fill a gallon pitcher almost half full of ice. Add the pureed mixture, the lemon and lime juice, and the Sprite. Stir it well and chill.
