I was sent some coupons to try out some Crofter's Organic Jams & Spreads in some cocktail recipes and I picked up several flavors, one being blackberry. I happen to love blackberry jams and I felt it would be dynamite with some nice, aged bourbon. I was right!
2 Oz. Aged Bourbon
1-1/2 Oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons of Crofter's Blackberry Spread (Jam)
1 Tablespoon of Local Organic Honey*
Fresh Blackberries & Mint Sprig for Garnish
Chill your cocktail glass in the freezer. Warm the Crofter's and the honey in the microwave for 20 seconds then add to your ice filled cocktail shaker. Pour in the bourbon and lemon juice and shake until icy cold. Garnish with the fresh blackberries and the mint sprig and enjoy.
I also picked up some of Crofter's Apricot so be on the lookout for an Apricot Bourbon Sour in the near future!
