Blackberry Bourbon Smash

Blackberry Bourbon Smash

This is the latest favorite cocktail for me! It is just delightful and is quite fun to make. If you’re a bourbon fan, try it with Jack Daniels or your favorite bourbon. The drink reminds me of the Mint Julep. In fact, I used some of my mint simple syrup instead of just plain simple syrup. Mix it up and see what you think. You won’t be able to drink just one!!

Live it up and drink it down!
