Bourbon drinks are always a cult favorite thanks to the rich flavoring of the whiskey, and using bourbon as the base for refreshing berry cocktails only amplifies the smokey aromatic liquor. This recipe incorporates fresh berries, fruit puree and lemonade to create a sophisticated yet simple beverage.

The cocktail base is made from one cup of blackberry pure that can be made from scratch at home with fresh blackberries, water and a blender. Add the puree to several cups of store bought lemonade. Fresh blackberries, bourbon and mint garnish are added to finish off this sophisticated beverage. The smokiness of the bourbon is accentuated by the zesty lemon and sweet fruit. Creating cocktails with fresh ingredients and unexpected flavors shows openness to experimentation with older more mature liquors.
