7 to Midnight – Cocktail of the Week
One of my favorite mixology ingredients is blackberry brandy. I love the flavor, the color, and the way it can be used in a great variety of ways.
This week's cocktail will take you from 7 to Midnight.
This is a super easy drink to make -- a basic highball.
- 1.5 oz. vodka
- 1.5 oz. blackberry brandy
- 5 oz. lemon-lime soda
- lemon twist (to garnish)
- blackberry (to garnish)
Pour vodka and brandy over ice, top with soda. Gently stir. Garnish with lemon twist and fresh blackberry.
Couldn't be easier.
Switch it up:
Use a different liquor: rum, gin, whisky...whatever you like!
Use club soda, cola, cream soda or fruit-flavored soda.
Muddle some fresh blackberries in the bottom of the glass before adding ingredients.
Sometimes simple can be so good!
