Partially thaw frozen berries for 10 to 15 minutes; set aside.

Select Variable 1.

Switch machine to Start and slowly increase speed to Variable 8. Blend for 10 seconds until ginger is finely chopped. Stop machine and remove lid.

Add berries, mint, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and ice cubes to the container with the ginger mixture and secure lid.

Slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.

Stop machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur.

Serve immediately.
