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.

This year we could definitely all use a little luck of the Irish. In honor of one our favorite holidays - because who doesn't love an excuse to drink? - we reached out to Ransom Spirits. Their Emerald 1865 is (technically) an American whiskey, but it's renowned for being close to a classic Irish whiskey... and it's well worth searching for. We figured this made it the perfect choice for our Saint Patrick's Day cocktail. Sláinte!
