I think the blackberry will run roughshod over the other two. Keep it under 15% of the mix.

Raspberry's pretty potent, too. I would think the strawberries would want to be at least half, maybe 60% of the total.

I think your best bet is to prepare each fruit individually then mix a small MEASURED amount of the fruit together until you get it the way you want it. Then if you multiply the measurements you should end up being able to scale that mixture to what ever amount you need.

Puree and strain then mix away
