Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. fresh blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 oz. agave nectar (honey or maple syrup works too)
  • 5 leaves fresh mint + mint for garnish
  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon
  • ice

Instructions

  1. In your blender, blend the blackberries and water.
  2. Use a metal strainer to strain the juice into a bowl or cup.
  3. In a large glass with a thick bottom, put your sweetener. I used agave nectar, but you could also use honey, maple syrup, simple syrup, whatever you prefer.
  4. Add the mint leaves to the glass.
  5. Use the muddling wand (no clue what it’s actually called) to press the mint leaves and twist a bit to release the oils and bring out the minty flavor.
  6. Add the bourbon to the glass.
  7. If you want, you can also add lime juice. I forgot to add it in the video, but I think it’ll make a nice addition!
  8. Finally, add the blackberry puree to the mixing glass and stir it well until super combined.
  9. Add crushed ice to your individual glasses.
  10. Pour the drink over the ice and top with additional berries and mint leaves for garnish.
