Blackberry Smash with Salame Swizzle
Blackberry season comes along when the ground is crisp and scorched from summer’s heat and the thirst for refreshing, cold cocktails hasn’t ceased. The act of muddling (or in this case, smashing) fruit and mint as a base for a cocktail is mystically satisfying to any mixed drink maker. This drink’s tangy blackberries and sharp mint tamed by bourbon’s sweet notes keeps summer in its clutches ‒ it even has a built in snack of chorizo to tide you over to your refill.
Muddle the blackberries and mint leaves in a shaker. Fill the shaker with ice cubes. Pour in the bourbon, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake and strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Top with seltzer. Garnish with a bushy sprig of mint and chorizo stick. Repeat for remaining three cocktails.
