This bourbon inspired cocktail features our award winning Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel Aged Pure Maple Syrup as well as fresh blackberries to make for a cold weather cocktail that is still bright and fresh all the while warming the soul with its bourbon flavors.
- ¼ cup fresh blackberries
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 6 fresh mint leaves
- 2 teaspoons Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel-Aged Pure Maple Syrup
- 2 ounces bourbon whiskey
- 2 ounces wheat beer
- For garnish: blackberries and/or mint sprig
- Muddle fresh blackberries, lemon juice, mint leaves and maple syrup in a highball glass. Stir in the whiskey. Add ice (crushed if possible) and top with wheat beer.
- If you’re feeling fancy, cut a wooden skewer so that it’s slightly taller than your glass. Thread 4-5 blackberries onto the skewer and add it to your cocktail along with a sprig of fresh mint.
