Blackberry Whiskey SMASH

April 01, 2021

A whiskey smash is a classic cocktail with just four ingredients: whiskey, mint, lemon, and simple syrup or sugar. Add blackberries for a tart and sweet twist. You don’t need any fancy equipment to make it, and you’ll feel like quite the accomplished home bartender when you shake it up. If you aren’t a fan of whiskey and have wondered “how do you make whiskey tasty,” a whiskey smash is the perfect place to start.

WHISKEY SMASH

Single Serving/Firelight 750 To-Go

• 4 / 24 oz Ransom Spirits Whiskey
• 1/4 / 1.5 sliced lemon
• 2 / 12 tsp light agave nectar
• 8 / 3 dozen mint leaves
• 2 / 12 fresh blackberries

Instructions

Place the mint leaves, lemon wedges, blackberries and agave in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. With a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, mash 4 to 5 times, just enough to release juices and oils. Add the whiskey and top with a small handful of crushed ice. Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to combine. Pour into your ice-filled Firelight 350 or 750. Garnish with fresh mint.

Celebrating National Public Lands Day in Point Reyes National Seashore

Beginning your descent as you fly into SFO, you’ll see a knife edge gash of water cutting into California’s coastline, effectively separating Tomales Point from the rest of Marin County. You are looking at Tomales Bay, a body of water that is the actual San Andreas Fault. It’s part of fog-covered Point Reyes National Seashore and it’s also entirely encompassed by the infamous Red Triangle, home of the largest Great White Sharks in the world. This peninsula would absolutely be the part of California that slices off during an earthquake and also the destination we planned to celebrate 2021’s National Public Lands Day.
