Blackberry rosemary whiskey smash is an easy cocktail recipe using fresh blackberries & rosemary, lemon juice, ginger, maple syrup and bourbon!

If you can’t tell I love whiskey. Give it to me on ice, with lemonade, on my steak…you name it, I’ll drink it .

This blackberry rosemary whiskey smash feels like you’re drinking one of those fancy drinks at a high-end bar except it can be made easily in the comfort of your home in your PJ’s sitting by the fire (my perfect Friday night).

A classic whiskey smash is usually made with sugar, lemon and fresh mint that get muddled together and poured over whiskey with some ice.

Hence where the “smash” comes from…It’s kind of like a mojito but with whiskey.

This whiskey cocktail recipe is a twist on the classic smash with a wintry feel for the perfect winter bourbon drink .

    Well, for the 59th year of 59 years of Valentine’s Days, I am here alone; BUT NOT! —-For thou art Whisky Me:) And I solemnly thank you evah so much, Wine A Little Cook a Lot Gal!l BTW I used raspberries also as they were in the fridge waiting yogurt smoothies, haha, let’s add to that! Blackberries wild ‘round here and in the markets grow to the size of a thumb so use those if you can; much juicier; blueberries add some good antioxidants as well but again, use large ones - else strain.
