Happy Christmas Eve! I can’t believe December (and Christmas) is almost over, it FLEW by. I’m sure you have about 5,000 things to do. If one of those things is find a unique drink to serve guests tomorrow…you’ve found it! This Basil Blackberry Bourbon Cocktail is incredible (if I do say so myself).
- will please guests
- tastes good
- is easy to make
- will make difficult family members easier to be around
You can make a big batch before everyone comes and just add the sparkling water before serving. As the recipe notes, add more bourbon if you’d like a stronger drink. Cheers!
- 7 basil leaves
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/3 cup blackberries (approximately 6)
- 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey (4oz/2 shots)
- lemon sparkling water
Place basil, honey, lemon juice, blackberries and bourbon whiskey into blender. Blend until smooth
Add ice into cocktail shaker. Shake blended mixture and split between two glasses. Top with sparkling water. Garnish, serve & enjoy!
Add more bourbon for a stronger drink, duh!
