Low-Carb Poison Berry Smash Cocktail

Happy Halloween! This month, I thought it would make something fresh, easy, and ready to be enjoyed at any fall party — the spookier the better. All this drink needs is a few muddled blackberries, some fresh lemon, easy-to-make stevia simple syrup, and some chilled tequila. Mix it all together and you’re ready to enjoy your haunted Halloween concoction. I used tequila for this low-carb poison berry smash cocktail recipe, but it would also taste great with vodka or gin as well.
