This Blackberry Mint Julep is a classic cocktail recipe with a twist thanks to fresh blackberries and blackberry whiskey. You're going to love this berry-infused cocktail recipe. 


  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • ½ oz. blackberry puree*
  • 2 ½ oz. blackberry whiskey - I used Bird Dog.
  • ½  oz. simple syrup**
  • ½ oz. water


  • In the bottom of your glass, muddle / crush together mint leaves, simple syrup, and blackberry puree.
  • Fill glass with ice cubes, then pour in bourbon / whiskey and water. Stir.
  • Garnish with a few blackberries and a sprig of mint, and a super cute stir stick***.
  • Enjoy responsibly.


*Put a handful of fresh blackberries into a blender. Puree the blackberries until smooth.
**Bring 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a simmer over medium-high heat until sugar is completely dissolved. I usually let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes to create a thicker syrup. Allow syrup to cool completely.
***I just added a piece of washi tape, sticky sides together, and made a v-cut in the end.
