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. 

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 drink

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup fresh blackberries
  • ½ oz lime juice
  • 1 oz Caged Heat Cocktail Syrup
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • Ice
  • Club soda, to taste
  • Lime wheel & extra blackberries, to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. 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.
