How to Make Hocus Pocus Blueberry Blackberry Mocktail
All it takes to make this spooky Hocus Pocus Blueberry Blackberry Mocktail is a mixing bowl, a muddler and a few key ingredients. This is the same way I like to make all my fruity drinks. If you have a potato masher, that will do the trick!
Here's what to need to make Halloween mocktails:
Fresh blueberries and blackberries
Lemon juice. For a touch of brightness
Blueberry juice. I like to use RW Knudsen 100% blueberry juice.
Cinnamon. This adds a touch of fall-spiced flavor to the potion.
Agave. Feel free to use a different liquid sweetener if you like, such as honey or maple syrup.

Tips & Tricks
SWEETENER: Instead of Agave syrup, you can substitute with pure maple syrup, honey, or organic cane sugar as a syrup (sugar + water boiled over the stove top).
