Blueberry Bourbon Smash - time to start summer!
Can you stand the heat? No? Well then you should definitely try this refreshing Blueberry Bourbon Smash with crushed ice, tart blueberries and a nice touch of mint. Enjoyed with your favorite Bourbon of course.
Not all whisky or bourbon-based cocktails need to be heavy. Yes, some of them can have quite a kick but despite the name, this Blueberry Bourbon Smash will be a smashing success, as opposed to smashing you unconscious!
6-7 Blueberries (gently wash them first!)
7 mint leaves
¾ ounces lemon juice
1 ½ ounces Eagle Rare Bourbon Whiskey
½ ounce simple syrup
Muddle the blueberries with mint, the syrup and lemon juice in a shaker. Add the Bourbon and shake with a few ice cubes. Pour over crushed ice in a heavy tumbler and garnish with a lemon wheel and a sprig of mint.
For this cocktail I used fresh blueberries, Eagle Rare Bourbon Whiskey and a Norlan Heavy Rauk Tumbler.
