Blackberry Bourbon Fizz

Last Updated on

With spring and summer coming soon, I have been looking for some cocktails that would be good candidates for a warm summer evening. I found a great deal on some blackberries this weekend and with blackberries a summer fruit, I set out to make a nice drink  that would be light and refreshing.  A classic combination is whiskey and blackberry, so with a nice bottle of Cut Spike calling my name, I came up with this nice drink. While I was making this cocktail, my boys were bugging me to make a kid’s cocktail, so I included that at the bottom of this page.
