Blackberry bourbon wine cocktail

 I'm back with a vengeance foolios!  This married booze hound hasn't changed a bit.  We have these little rad wild bushes around these parts...... BLACKBERRIES!  Holy cowza they grow everywhere.  Like strangle other plants, need to cut them down in September everywhere.  Love em.  I didn't really get to experience the yearly tradition of blackberry picking this year.  Cause you know, I was a little busy, but I was able to snag a few before the season totally ended. 

May I present to you, one of the best cocktails I've ever made, a blackberry bourbon red wine cocktail.  Recipe only slightly adapted from here

To make 1 amazing cocktail you need:
  •  1 oz bourbon
  • 1 1/2 oz red wine
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 blackberries 
 Muddle 3 blackberries in a cocktail shaker with the simple syrup.  Add all of the other ingredients to the shaker and shake with ice for about 10 seconds.  Pour over a fine mesh strainer into a cocktail glass full of ice.  Add some blackberries for garnish and you have a really impressive cocktail.  YESSS!

Enjoy friends.

  1. I've never been a bourbon drinker, but if it has red wine and blackberries, I could be sold on it!
