This blackberry bourbon sour is the perfect cocktail to get the holiday festivities started! The perfectly ripe blackberries are blended with citrus, and a healthy helping of bourbon! A few dashes of bitters, and you are ready to pour!
We just love using additional Driscoll’s blackberries to make the cutest garnish with rosemary! All you have to do is poke through with a metal skewer and then insert the rosemary! The scent of the rosemary in this blackberry bourbon sour is dreamy!
Clearly this recipe is for a single blackberry bourbon sour, but just multiply this by 4 or 6 to make up a pitcher of them in advance! You can mix up without the bourbon, and let the guests add as little or as much bourbon as they want!
