The Blackberry Booze Bash

It is officially fall and we are rolling into cooler nights and shorter days. Rich foods and red wines are being paired to accompany our need for cozy comfort.

Earthy Cocktails are IN

To change things up, try this delightful and refreshingly cocktail. It has the tartness from the berries, the sweetness from the honey and the herbal notes from the rosemary to compliment the grit of the tequila. Add a splash of bubbles on top to lighten it up and you may find yourself shaking up a second in the blink of an eye!

Blackberry Booze Bash

Place 8+ blackberries in a shaker.
Add 1 Tsp. chopped rosemary to shaker.
Next, squeeze 1/2 lemon into shaker.
Add 2+ Tbsp. honey.
2+ oz. of tequila.
Add 3-4 dashes of orange bitters
Muddle* it all in the bottom of the shaker.
*This just means mash it so all the aromas and flavors come out and start to meld together.  The back of a wooden spoon works great!
Shake for 1 minute and pour into a glass filled with ice.
Top with club soda.
Garnish and serve!

I hope you try this out!  The Blackberry Booze Bash is light, refreshing, complex and is made up of all fresh whole ingredients.  (That means no guilt, right?! LOL!)  Forewarned: they go down quite easily 😉

Happy Fall to you!

xo, Melissa
