Bourbon • Sweet
Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade

Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade—there’s a phrase that makes us want to hop on the porch swing and while away the day until the hot summer sun dips below the horizon. This cooling cocktail is easy to whip up on a scorching day, but its balanced flavor and cute presentation also make it perfect for dinner parties. “Created with bourbon, fresh lemon juice and Angostura, this famed Southern punch has a tart, bitter taste with just the right amount of sweetness,” says Daniel Toral of Miami’s Yardbird. If you’re not a blackberry fan, feel free to muddle blueberries or raspberries instead.
