Author Notes

This version of the old-fashioned Smash cocktail contains blackberries, vodka, and St. Germain {a French liqueur made from Elderberry flowers}. The addition of limes and fresh mint make it a perfect Summer evening cocktail, that tastes somewhat similar to a Mojito, but with a fruity punch. —the parsley thief

What You'll Need
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 14 fresh blackberries
  • Splash simple syrup
  • 1/3 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup St. Germain liqueur
  • ice
  • seltzer water
  1. Add half of the lime wedges, mint leaves, and blackberries to each glass. Use a muddler {or the back of a wooden spoon} to coarsely crush the fruit and mint.
  2. Pour a splash of simple syrup into each glass, and give it a stir. Divide the vodka and St. Germain liqueur between the two glasses, then fill each to the rim with ice. Top each glass off with bubbly water and serve!
