Blackberry Peach Sparkling Soda

I search for a new refreshing drink every time the weather heats up.  Usually they involve blackberries.  This year I combined it with another favorite ~ peach juice.  The simple syrup takes about 20 minutes to make.

Blackberry Peach Sparkling Soda

1/4 cup blackberry peach simple syrup (recipe below)
1 cup sparkling water ~ I used Perrier

Blackberry Peach Simple Syrup

1/2 cup sugar
2 cups peach nectar (juice)
1 cup blackberries (I used frozen since they release more juice)

Stir and combine the peach juice and sugar.  Add in the blackberries and heat over medium heat until the berries release their juice which will be about 20 minutes.  Let cool down and strain out the berries.

In a tall glass, add in the blackberry peach syrup, ice and sparkling water.
