'blackberries' on Serious Eats

Bumbleberry Syrup

The uses for this near-effortless syrup are endless: Stir it into summery cocktails, flutes of Champagne, or lemonade, swirl it into yogurt or oatmeal, or drizzle it over ice cream, cakes, and pies. More

Berry Crisp Cake

This cake is rich and tangy with mascarpone cheese, spiked with sweet white wine. Once baked, the berries sink into the cake and burst, becoming a built-in layer of fresh jam, while the crumble melts and crisps into a cookie-like crust that provides wonderful textural contrast. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or at room temperature with a cup of steaming coffee in the morning. More

Lucy Basilia

Made with blackberries and basil, this juicy and fresh vodka cocktail is the ideal thirst quencher on a hot day. Simply multiply the portions to serve out of a pitcher for a crowd. At Lucy's, they use Dripping Springs vodka. More

Blackberry Pistachio Icebox Cake

I love icebox cakes in the summer, when the thought of turning on an oven is too much to bear. This cake veers a bit from tradition, adding blackberries, pistachios, and pomegranate molasses in between layers of tea biscuits and rose water-infused whipped cream. It's sweet and creamy like an icebox cake should be, but tart berries and nutty pistachios keep things interesting. More
