Boozeberry Smash

Bourbon is my go to drink and this is my favorite cocktail right now.  Stay tuned for many favorites. 

I never like to drink alone so this recipe as with most of my recipes is intended for two. If by some chance I am drinking alone (or my drinking partner isn’t up for bourbon…I know, I know who isn’t up for bourbon?!) feel free to cut the recipe in half, or have a double.


  • 2 ounces simple syrup (for an easy homemade simple syrup click here)

  • 8 fresh mint leaves

  • 2 limes

  • ¼ cup blueberries

  • 4 ounces bourbon

  • 2 ounces seltzer


Put the simple syrup, mint leaves and juice from 1 ½ limes into a cocktail shaker and muddle them until mint is fragrant and blueberries are broken down. Add the bourbon and fill the shaker with ice; using a long cocktail spoon, stir vigorously until very cold.

Fill rocks glasses with ice and use a fine strainer to strain the drink into each glass. Add a splash of seltzer to the top of each. Garnish each drink with a sprig of mint, lime wedge and extra blueberries to serve.
