Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade: The Weekend Wedding Cocktail Recipe from Peerless Events!


We put together this warm, summery drink for our first Rochester Indie Weddings Summer Vendor Party, and I can say it was a huge hit!  It’s deliciously simple for a cocktail party, with a few simple ingredients, and so pretty to look at. Our lady and gentlemen guests alike drank then down with smiles on their faces…bourbon tends to do that!

If you’re making this for yourself and a few friends at home, I suggest breaking out the good bourbon. You’ll definitely appreciate a nice warm, slightly sweet boozy element with the sweet and citrus. My favorite is the Bulleit Bourbon, right out of Kentucky. Definitely stick with the straight bourbon instead of going the rye route,  because you want that hint of spice! If you’re sharing with a larger group and want to cut some cost, use a nicer whiskey substitute and shake up a blackberry whiskey lemonade!
