INSTRUCTIONS

  • On a shallow plate, combine the sugar and lime zest. Run the lime wedge around the edge of your glasses, then invert each glass into the plate to create a sugar/lime rim.
  • In a cocktail shaker or glass jar, add blackberries, mint, lemon juice and honey, using a muddler, (or even the end of a rolling pin or other kitchen tool). Muddle all of the ingredients together, squishing everything to release the juices. Add the bourbon.
