My first drink post! On one hand it's a bit of a shocker, considering the origin of Charm Hour, and my affection for a nice drink. On the other hand, I'm pretty straight forward when it comes to booze- give me a dark beer or a dry wine and I'm a happy woman.
On this particular afternoon, Joe texted me about doing something fancy for dinner. I had a bag of tricks up my sleeve for a nice dinner to cook, and it turned out Joe didn't have ideas for food, just for drinks. Somewhere in the world wide wed he came across this little charmer:
Who could resist?! Especially when Joe seriously loves bourbon. We even have a painting of a Maker's Mark bottle in our kitchen (and a Budweiser bottle- gotta keep that class under control). Painting is another one of those artistic things that I have little training beyond hanging out with my grandmother but love to pick up from time to time. Which is basically everything here on Charm Hour, now that I think of it.
Before I get any more distracted, the Blackberry Bourbon Fizz!
Bourbon - pick your favorite
And now for those very simple directions:
Add your blackberries and crush as much or as little as you please.
You can always crush them later with a spoon.
We like this stuff.
Joe more than me- you can guess which one's mine.
Fill most of the way with ginger ale.
And add a spritz of club soda.
And that's it! I crushed up my blackberries at this point to get a little more fruity flavor in there.
