Blackberry-Mint Julep

I've been coming up with different drinks and dishes to use all the wonderful herbs I planted this year. Fresh mint is so much better than the fake liquid flavouring.  


  • Small ice cubes

  • ¼ c. blackberries

  • 1 blackberry

  • 2 tbsp. mint

  • 1 sprig mint

  • 1 tbsp. sugar

  • 1½ oz. bourbon

DIRECTIONS: Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. In a shaker, combine the 1/4 cup of blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, bourbon, and 1/3 cup of ice cubes and shake well.

Strain the drink into the glass through a coarse sieve, pressing on the solids. Garnish with the blackberry and mint sprig.  


You can use chocolate mint leaves and strawberries instead for a different taste.
