Blackberry Whiskey Sour Recipe

Blackberry Whiskey Sour welcomes spring in the most delightful and boozy way. Cheers!

Whiskey and blackberries go hand in hand. It might not be an obvious pairing, but it IS amazing. So let's mix up a drink and celebrate Spring in style!

I love the traditional food and drink recipes that go along with any season, but I also like trying out new ingredients and switching things around a little bit (don't we all?).

It's just turned to Spring, though I think someone needs to remind Mother Nature. It was -15 this morning at 6 am. Do I still live in New Jersey?? I mean, seriously, those are like Alaska temperatures.

My deck boards keep popping all night long from the cold, my kids keep having delayed openings… not from snow, but because it’s too COLD for them to go to school. It’s insane.

Anyway, when I was looking around for in-season fruit or berries, and the one that stood out was blackberries. They look perfect no matter what season you’re in.

The strawberries and raspberries at my local store had definitely seen better days.

So blackberries it was.

My wife and I love making whiskey sours. All fresh ingredients though, no sour mix.

To kick up the flavors in this blackberry whiskey sour, I ran out and got myself some blackberry brandy. The best part was that the blackberry brandy is super sweet, so there wasn’t any need to add a simple syrup mixture to this drink.

Just a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and it's ready.

If you really want to make this drink full of blackberry flavor, you can muddle a few fresh blackberries in the bottom of the glass before adding your ice. Then top it with the whiskey and bourbon and fresh lemon juice.

Stir and drink!

Maybe this blackberry whiskey sour will become a new Spring tradition for you!
