2 cups Oregon blackberries – fresh or frozen
1 12-ounce can peach nectar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons sugar – (3 to 4 tablespoons)
16 ounces crushed ice – (approximate)
Sparkling mineral water – (optional)

Crush/purée berries and strain through a fine sieve to yield approximately 1 cup purée. (If berries are frozen, partially thaw before crushing.)
