Blackberry Bourbon Smash
This wonderful recipe has been adapted from mom4real.com. We added our own simple syrup recipe to highlight our blackberry-ginger balsamic. It adds a nice touch of ginger to back end of this cocktail.
2 ounces of bourbon (I used Buffalo Trace)
1 ounce of club soda
1/2 ounce of fresh squeezed lime juice
3/4 ounces of blackberry-ginger simple syrup
3–4 fresh blackberries
4–5 mint leaves
blackberries and a sprig of mint for garnish (optional)
Add the lime juice, simple syrup, blackberries and mint leaves to a glass.
Muddle (smash) them together.
Fill glass with ice.
Top off with club soda and stir gently.
Garnish with blackberries and a sprig of mint.
