Blackberry Smash.... Mmmm!

How pretty is this summer drink? I have not tried the recipe, but it looks delicious, however, I am a little weary of the whisky (?). My experience with whisky has never been too positive :)

Blackberry Smash

2 tbsp coarse sugar

2 1/2 tbsp lime juice

8-10 fresh mint leaves

1 1/2 oz. Chambord

1 oz. Jack Daniels Whiskey

Handful of fresh blackberries

Club soda

Muddle the sugar, lime juice and 6-8 mint leaves for about 30 seconds or about 8 twists of the muddler. Add the Chambord and whiskey and muddle for another 8 twists or so of the muddler. Shake over ice and pour with the ice into a tall glass. Mix in the blackberries and fill the rest of the glass with club soda. Add remaining mint as garnish. I love to pluck the blackberries from the bottom, after they've been soaking in the 'smash' for a while and enjoy their juicy goodness.
