Huckleberry Fizz Cocktail

If you are from Montana, you are familiar with Huckleberries. They are the most delicious purple berries that grow on the western side of the state, high elevation in the mountains, on the north facing side (complicated, huh?).

Picking huckleberries also only occurs during a very short window of time in mid-July. Too early in the month and they aren't ripe enough. Too late in the month and they are shriveled up from the heat. Also, did I mention that huckleberries only grow in the wild??? Yep. They are a very tricky berry! Why do they have to taste so good!?!?

Picking huckleberries is also a local obsession over on the western side Montana. People find sacred hidden patches and won't tell anyone where they are. Finders keepers! It's taken until about 2 years ago for my family to finally find our hidden patch, and we aren't telling anyone! And for those who chose to not pick their own berries have to pay $40-50 for a 1 pound bag of berries at Farmer's Markets. 

Huckleberries are gold! 

So when it's not the summer months and huckleberries aren't available in the mountains or markets, I like to enjoy my favorite cocktail of all time...
