Honey-Lemon Blackberry Bourbon Smash

This recipe is an original.  When I have some free time, I sit around and try to invent cocktails that are appealing to those who enjoy them.

This recipe uses "good quality" products in it such as honey from Savannah Bee Company and Bourbon from Buffalo Trace Distillery.  Make sure to use ripe blackberries in the recipe to get the most flavor and sweetness from them.


  • Blackberries 6-10, depending on their size.
  • 1 1/2 ounces of honey
  • 2 ounces of bourbon
  • Juice from half a small lemon (can use a lime, if preferred)
  • Club Soda


  1. Place 2 or 3 large blackberries in the bottom of a shaker glass
  2. add 1 1/2 ounces to the glass.
  3. add 2 ounces of bourbon to the glass.
  4. add juice from half a lemon to the glass.
  5. place rind from lemon in the glass and muddle well, make sure that everything is muddled and mixed well.
  6. Strain into an ice filled "Rocks" glass.
  7. Top with club soda and a couple of blackberries for garnish.
  8. Stir and enjoy!
