This is the PERFECT spring/summer drink: light and delicious, even if you’re not a whiskey lover, which I am not. And its super simple too- its an adapted Pinterest recipe because I absolutely cannot follow recipes exactly as they are written.
Make the Blackberry Simple Syrup by mixing equal parts warm water, regular white sugar and blackberries. Blend until all the seeds are smooth (this is a really good use of your Vitamix)
To make Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade: Now mix equal parts Blackberry Simple Syrup, Whiskey (we used Jameson) and lemon juice in a large pitcher, Add a handful of rosemary sprigs for mild flavor and decoration (optional) Stir.
To serve: Fill a rocks glass half way with ice, pour in Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade, and top off with some club soda (we used Lemon LaCroix) and a little rosemary sprig for garnish (optional).
Enjoy the deliciousness.
