Blackberry Bourbon Smash August 24 2017, 0 Comments

For the bourbon lovers out there, here is a tasty variation of the classic mojito. 

Prep time: 10 mins 
Yield: 2
Serving Size: 1 8oz mason jar


  • 4 oz of your favorite bourbon (we used Buffalo Trace)
  • 4 lime wedges squeezed
  • 10-14 mint leaves
  • 4-6 blackberries 
  • 1.5 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2 oz of club soda
  • Cup of ice

Thanks to Morgan for some expert makeshift muddling! 


  1. In a 16oz mason jar, combine mint leaves, lime wedges and blackberries.
  2. Muddle thoroughly (for those who don't have a spare muddler, we used a shot glass for this and it worked quite well).
  3. Add the bourbon, ice and sugar. Put the lid on the mason jar and shake well.
  4. Pour the mixture into 2 8oz mason jars and top with club soda.
  5. Stir, garnish with blackberry and mint leaves and enjoy!
