Drink recipe: Blackberry smash

I love the fact that I discovered this drink at a Dallas restaurant named The Porch. Indeed, the drink is a perfect porch-crowd pleaser. You’ll love the wonderful marriage of mint and blackberry, and its gorgeous deep ruby colour.

Ingredients
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 16 fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup rye whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 1/2 cup ginger ale, plus more for topping off
  • Garnish: skewers of fresh blackberries (optional) 

Directions
Muddle the mint and blackberries in a cocktail shaker. Add the whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and ½ cup ginger ale. Add ice and mix with bar spoon (don’t shake—remember there’s ginger ale in there). Pour into wide-mouth or tall cocktail glasses filled with ice. Top off with extra ginger ale to taste. Garnish, if desired.

Serves 2
