I wanted a special beverage to bring over to a friend's house on Sunday and so, with a little guidance from my favorite (west coast) chef, I came up with a (very) modified version of this mixer. I used blue berries and raspberries (plus 1/2 cup of water and 3T of agave nectar for each cup of fruit) and simmered it all down to a syrup. I also put in a little fresh thyme that we happened to have. I was nervous about the thyme, but it could have used more after all. We drank is Sunday simply with sparkling water, but that night after Henry was in bed I made (sort of) a margarita with it. Yum.
