This is way too tasty for its own good, and I don’t even enjoy Bourbon too much. This was one of my contributions to a summer cocktail party we had a couple of months ago, and it seemed to go over well. I got this from Martha Stewart.
- 1/2 cup packed fresh mint leaves
- 1 pint blackberries
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 4 cups small ice cubes
- 4 sprigs mint, for garnishing
Roughly chop mint leaves.
Puree the mint, blackberries, and sugar in a blender. Press through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard seeds.
Rinse blender, then return puree to blender, and add bourbon and small ice cubes; blend until smooth. Divide mixture among 4 glasses. Garnish each with a mint sprig.
