Of course, you’ll need bourbon. Try Bluff Springs, one of my favorites, for a softer, sweeter flavored bourbon. Don’t forget the honey, bitters, and blackberries.

This recipe also requires Mead. Not every liquor store sells Mead, so you should check first. I purchased my Mead and Honey at the Savannah Bee Company in Charleston.

Bar Tools you’ll need to make a Bourbon Blackberry Mead Cocktail

OXO Steel Cocktail Shaker

Martini or cocktail, I find that a good shake makes all the difference in the world. I have at least a dozen shakers, but my favorite is OXO. It doesn’t leak, the cap will measure from 1/2 ounce to 1.5 ounces and it’s dishwasher safe. You can’t go wrong with OXO. You will also need a muddle for the blackberries.

How to prepare a Bourbon Blackberry Mead Cocktail

In a separate bowl mix the honey and water together to make the honey syrup. Then add the blackberries, bitters, syrup, and orange peel to a glass and muddle for a few seconds. Add the mead, bourbon, and water to a shaker with ice and shake for 5 seconds. Add a large ice cube to the glass and pour the contents of the shaker over the cube. Now you are ready to enjoy. Garnish with a lemon twist.
