Granulated sugar, for the rim of the glass
Zest from 1 lime, also for the rim
8 fresh blackberries
7 mint leaves
Juice of ½ lemon
2 T honey
2 oz bourbon, more or less to taste
Ginger beer for topping


Combine the sugar and lime zest on a plate. Run the lime wedge around the edge of your glasses, then invert each glass into the plate to create a sugar/lime rim. In a cocktail shaker, add blackberries, mint, lemon juice and honey. Using a muddler, muddle all ingredients together, mashing everything to release the juices. Add the bourbon. Add ice to your rimmed glass and pour the drink over the ice. Top the glass with a little more ice, then pour the ginger beer over, gently stirring. Add fresh mint and enjoy!
