Blackberry Peach Smash

I am a self-proclaimed Bourbon Drink Connoisseur! 

As long as Conniseaur qualifies as just fancy talk for “I order it whenever I can”

 

I’ve studied all the bar menus and signature cocktail ingredients throughout establishments across the state, and the best ones seem to have a very common theme:  fresh fruit

And isn’t that dandy when we live right here in this great state that produces all the fresh fruit you could ever want…

 

In this recipe, I use ripe peaches and tart blackberries with a little mint thrown in.  The flavor combination cuts through the strength of the whiskey and makes for a smooth cocktail that is satisfying and easy to drink.

 

It’s super simple so let’s get started!  

Slice 1/4 of the peach and remove the skin.  Rough chop and add to the bottom of a highball glass.  Add in a few berries and about 6 fresh mint leaves

 

Pour in about a teaspoon of honey

 

Using a muddler, or even the back of a fork, “smash” the ingredients together… see why its named a smash?  You were thinking the other reason, weren’t you 😉

 

Place your ice in the glass and pour the bourbon in

 

Add a seltzer topper and you’re done!  

 

Garnish with a slice of peach and whole blackberry.

Enjoy!
