Now you might be saying Paul smash, you use fresh fruit and you muddle it. Well, yes, that’s true, but during the winter months some of our favorite fruits are mine, at least like raspberries blueberries. Blackberries can be a little bit difficult to get and even when you can get them oftentimes they’re, not nearly as flavorful as when they’re in proper season.
So a great workaround for that is using preserves or jams make sense without any further ado, let’s make a cocktail, but if you haven’t already, please go ahead and click on the subscribe button and the bell icon C be notified. Every time we do a new article build your winter bourbon smash, he’ll use two tablespoons of raspberry preserves, or if you have another fruit that you prefer, you can use that one as well.
Next, we’re going to add half an ounce of fresh lemon juice. One ounce of fresh orange juice, half an ounce of triple sec and one and a half ounces of the Bourbon of your choice. Now this is another opportunity where, if you’re not a huge fan of bourbon, you want something little bit more spicy. You can go with a bride, something sweeter. You can go with a brandy or a cognac and just cap that off into your shaker tin, full of ice and give it a good shake strain into the glass of your choice over ice and now because we’re using raspberry preserves.
There is going to be a bit of seeds here. If you don’t like seeds in your cocktail. I do you can always double strain this and that will catch all the seeds and then just going to add a light, splash Seltzer to lift it a little bit. Give that a quick stir and then just garnish, the small wedge of orange and easy as that you have the winter bourbon smash mmm. This is delightful now. You might think that, because of all the preserves that this would be an overly sweet cocktail, but because of that fresh lemon juice, it really cuts it and balances it out.
If you like, fruit-forward cocktails, that aren’t overly sweet and just have a lot of complex flavors check this one out and let us know what you think: cheers from drinks made easy
