About this Cocktail

I made two pints of Blackberry Shrub from the harvest from a wild/volunteer blackberry bush we have growing in our backyard. Berries plus vinegar plus basil seems to be a very viable combination so I decided to add a decent pile of basil to the shaker, and it came out great. The basil really completes the drink compared to the basil-free version I made last week.

Ingredients:
  • 2oz fighting cock 103 Bourbon
  • 1.25oz blackberry shrub
  • .25oz Agave Syrup
  • 8ish basil leaves
  • Angostura Bitters
Preparation:

Add all ingredients except bitters to iceless shaker. Dry shake vigorously- like so vigorously that after a hard workout and 5hours of yardwork I got a bicep cramp shaking this drink. Add ice and shake again untill well chilled. Double strain into chilled glass. Bitters to top foam once foam has setlled.
