Last year in Nashville I did a gig for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s new fragrance line from Coty called Soul2Soul which has “blackberry notes” in it. That’s perfume talk for “what’s in the dang perfume” (I didn’t know this at all!) LMAO! So, along with singing and cooking, I was asked to create a drink with blackberries in it. I set out like a mad scientist and created my Blackberry Guzzler.
This is a tangy and sweet summer drink that looks like a million and tastes like a trillion. Serve it in mason jars with a garnish of lemon, lime and a few fresh blackberries. I served them on an old slate backboard and just wrote the name by the drinks. Cool huh? Recipe below.
1 oz vodka
1 oz rum
1/2 once blackberry simple syrup (I use Monin)
splash of lemonade
garnish with lemon, lime and blackberries
Serve in 8 oz jar/glass, mix all ingredients over ice and garnish.
