Blackberry Whiskey Smash

A homemade whiskey smash gets a sophisticated twist with the addition of fresh blackberries and quality whiskey, resulting in a refreshing and fruity cocktail. This blackberry whiskey smash is perfect for enjoying during blackberry season or can be made throughout the year using frozen blackberries. We used Old Pulteney 12 year Single Malt Scotch in this recipe, but feel free to use your preferred whiskey or scotch for a personalized touch.
