Blackberry Smash

I got together with DIY Cocktails and made a Blackberry Smash. (The name makes me think of the Hulk. “Hulk smash!”) We crushed the blackberries with a little simple syrup, lemon juice, and mint, then mixed it with bourbon. Kind of like a mint julep, only with berries. Plus it’s pretty.

Blackberry Smash

(Makes 1 cocktail)

    3 ounces fresh blackberries
    1 1/2 ounce bourbon
    1 ounce simple syrup
    8 small mint leaves
    1 dash fresh lemon juice


In a cocktail shaker, muddle all the ingredients so that the blackberries and mint are crushed. Fill a highball glass with crushed ice. Pour the drink over the ice. Enjoy!
