Make: Blackberry Basil Whiskey Smash

You're three short steps away from the perfect summer cocktail. 

Ingredients: 

  • 7 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 Lemon (quartered)
  • 3 blackberries
  • 1 TBSP Simple Syrup
  • 2 oz Bourbon (We like Koval - Distilled in Chicago) 

Instructions:

  1.  Muddle basil, lemon, blackberries and simple syrup together using a muddler or the end of  a wooden spoon; mashing 4-5 times in a mixing glass just to release the juices and oils. 
  2.  Add Bourbon. Strain and transfer to a rocks glass.
  3.  Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon peel and sprig of basil.
