TGIH – Thank Goodness It’s Happy Hour friends! This week we’re continuing our Friday Cocktail Series with a full-of-flavor Blackberry Smash crafted by Eden Passante from Sugar and Charm. Served in our Library Glassware, this refreshing sip is just too good to wait until Halloween to serve. We’re planning on whipping up a few this weekend – no skull accessories required, but they sure are fun!
RECIPE: Blackberry Smash
For the blackberry simple syrup:
1 C water
1 C sugar
1 C blackberries
Put all ingredients over medium high heat until the blackberries start to burst and the mixture thickens. Remove from heat to cool. Makes 11 oz of simple syrup

1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce blackberry simple syrup
Pack a rocks glass with crushed ice. In a shaker, mix the Gin, lemon juice and blackberry simple syrup together. Shake, pour over the crushed ice and finish with a drizzle of blackberry simple syrup on top.
