Blackberry Peach Cooler

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.) Combine purée with remaining ingredients, stir and pour into chilled glasses. Sparkling mineral water makes a nice addition and may be added to glasses if desired.

"Put your feet up and enjoy the lazy days of summer with this cool, refreshing libation."
