Probably our favorite Bucking Bull cocktail here on the ranch. We do all our cocktails old school, but bring a little something new to keep them up to date. With the Blackberry Smashbull, it’s the brown sugar, max blackberries and extra lime juice.
Here’s what you need (makes one drink):
- 2 ounces Bucking Bull Bourbon
- 3 lime wedges squeezed (1/3 ounce fresh lime juice)
- 6 mint leaves
- 8 blackberries
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1-ounce club soda
- ½ cup crushed ice
Here’s what you do:
Combine lime wedges, mint leaves, and blackberries, then muddle to your heart’s content. Add Bucking Bull, brown sugar and ice, then shake for 15 seconds. Strain and pour the Smash into a classic rocks glass. Stir then garnish with a mint leaf and a blackberry (for a different twist you might try a cinnamon stick instead). Smashing!
