The ease of making this drink morph from cocktail to mocktail is in its brilliance; an unbelievably refreshing and unique drink perfect for entertaining (or for family fun with the mocktail version). Blackberries and rose are the dominant notes, regardless of alcohol, which elevates both flavors in the bourbon version. There are sage hints both in the tasting notes and the visual intrigue. This cocktail is reminiscent of a deepening red maple leaf tree.
1½ ounces Split Rock Organic Bourbon
1 tablespoon Royal Rose Organic Rose Syrup
In a glass, muddle blackberries and rose syrup. Add ice, bourbon and soda water and stir.
Garnish with sage leaf.
