Blackberry Mint Julep

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.
