  • 6 - 7 blackberries
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 4 ounces [sour mix]
  • 4 - 5 leaves mint
  • ice
  • slice of lime optional (for rim)
  • sugar optional (for rim)


  • If you are going to rim your glass, do that first. Rub the lime wedge around the rim of the glass and dip in sugar.
  • Muddle blackberries and mint.
  • Stir in bourbon and sour mix.
  • Add ice.


  • If you don't like chunks of blackberry and mint in your drink, muddle it in a cocktail shaker, add the bourbon and sour mix, shake, and strain into your glass!
  • Just in case you don't have a cocktail shaker, use a jar with lid and a strainer.
  • If you want to rim your glass with sugar, do that first before you mix your drink!
  • If you don't have fresh blackberries, frozen will work just fine.
  • The key to this drink is the bourbon. Go with a bourbon that has some vanilla to it. Stay away from anything with cinnamon or that it hot! It doesn't work with this drink. (We used Woodford Reserve.)
