Impress at your next patio or porch party with the Zipper - a deliciously sweet and slightly tart blend of vodka, blackberry liqueur, sparkling wine, lemon-lime soda and fresh berries. Slow down, it feels like summer...


The etymology of the name is a bit of a mystery, but it’s no secret that this drink is delicious. And easy to make in a large quantity so you can spend more time working the crowd, less time working the bar. Simply muddle the berries in a glass pitcher and pour in vodka and blackberry liqueur. As needed, fill highball glasses half full, top with bubbles and turn ‘em loose. Garnish with berries or mint and zip…err, sip away!


  1. MUDDLE all berries in a pitcher

  2. POUR vodka and blackberry liqueur into pitcher

  3. STIR 15 seconds to incorporate all ingredients

  4. FILL a highball glass halfway with the mix (do not strain)

  5. ADD lemon-lime soda and fill glass with ice

  6. TOP with sparkling wine

  7. GARNISH with 3 or 5 berries on a cocktail stick and a mint sprig (optional)
