Seasonal Sips: Maple Bourbon Blackberry Smash

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.



  1. 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.
  2. 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.
