Stay cool this summer with a blackberry bourbon smash! You’ll just love how that sweet, smooth bourbon gets a refreshing makeover from those blackberries, mint, lemon and bubbly club soda topping.
Lemon Blackberries Blackberry simple syrup Fresh mint leaves Bourbon Ice Club soda
Add the lemon wedges, blackberries and blackberry simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Muddle until the berries and lemon wedges break down. Add the mint leaves and lightly muddle a few times.
Pour in the bourbon and add a handful of ice. Secure the cocktail shaker top and shake vigorously for 15-30 seconds.
Replace the cocktail shaker top with the Hawthorne strainer. Strain the drink into an ice-filled double old fashioned glass.
Top with the chilled club soda. Stir gently to combine. If desired, garnish with more blackberries and a fresh mint sprig.
With those jammy berries, pop of fresh mint and citrus, and sweet bourbon, this drink was made for summer sipping on the patio.
Delish!! It was my first smash attempt and won't be my last. I loved the flavor of the fresh fruit.
