It’s official: after living in Tennessee for 10 years, I have become a fan of bourbon. This delicious cocktail was served at this past May’s Inspired Retreat and was a big hit with attendees. Not to mention, there is nothing that says summer more than lemonade and fresh picked blackberries. This cocktail is not too sweet and is refreshingly tart – perfect for your next outdoor soiree!
Bourbon Blackberry Lemonade
4 cups of fresh squeezed lemonade
1 cup of pureed blackberries
1 cup of Jack Daniel’s or your favorite bourbon
2 cups of frozen blackberries
Mix all in large pitcher. Garnish ice-filled glass with fresh mint and serve to your guest with your favorite striped straw.
