Our mint is ready to be picked and we're putting it to good use!
A mint julep with blackberries is a lovely, refreshing summer cocktail. Here's how you can make your own using fresh mint and blackberries from your garden:
• Small ice cubes
• 1/4 cup blackberries, plus 1 blackberry for garnish
• 2 tablespoons mint leaves, plus 1 mint sprig for garnish
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. In a shaker, combine the 1/4 cup of blackberries, mint leaves, sugar, bourbon and 1/3 cup of ice cubes and shake well. Strain the drink into the glass through a coarse sieve, pressing on the solids. Garnish with the blackberry and mint sprig.
