Summer is officially done, which means this will probably be one of the last fruity-refreshing drinks I get to share on here for a while. Sad day!
A while back on a good old fashioned date night with Michael, I ordered the most delicious blackberry bourbon drink. It was the perfect combination of sweet, sour, and bitter- with a hint of lemon and seltzer in it.
I didn't have blackberries on hand, but I did my best to recreate it with some raspberries:

What you'll need to make it happen:
- Handful of raspberries
- 2 ounces bourbon (I love Bulleit)
- 1/2 ounce of triple sec
- ginger ale
- ice & cute straws

How to make it happen:
Step 1: Pour your bourbon over your raspberries in the bottom of the glass you're choosing to use & mash 'em up.
Step 2: Add your ice and triple sec & stir!
Step 3: Fill glass with ginger ale, garnish with raspberries, and sip through a lovely straw.

I mean, easy, right?

This drink is both cool & refreshing and warming (thanks to the bourbon) - making it the perfect beginning of Fall/End of summer drink!

What drink are you sipping on these days?
If raspberry is your jam - try these too!
