  3. Slowly add in chilled club soda and swirl gently.

You can use white granulated sugar if you prefer, but I love the deeper flavor of the brown sugar with the blackberries. The sugar grains help bring out all of the mint oils and lime flavor while muddling.

If you don’t own a muddler, no worries. Neither do I. I use the end of a wooden spoon to do the trick.
