Midsummer’s Heat – A Spicy Blackberry Bourbon Smash Cocktail
Midsummer’s Heat is a Spicy Blackberry Bourbon Smash Cocktail made with fresh fruit, tart lime juice, and the award-winning Caged Heat Cocktail Syrup. It's a perfectly refreshing summer drink.
Servings 1 drink
- ¼ cup fresh blackberries
- ½ oz lime juice
- 1 oz Caged Heat Cocktail Syrup
- 2 oz bourbon
- Club soda, to taste
- Lime wheel & extra blackberries, to garnish (optional)
Muddle the fresh blackberries and lime juice together in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the Caged Heat Cocktail Syrup, bourbon, and two ice cubes to the shaker, secure the top, and shake vigorously until well-chilled. Remove the lid of the shaker and pour all of the contents into a glass (you want to keep all the fruit!). Top with another ice cube or two and a bit of club soda to taste. Garnish with a pair of blackberries and a lime wheel if you like being fancy.
