Bourbon Berry Smash


  • 1.5oz Iron Wolf Select Bourbon (can also be subbed for Iron Wolf Vodka or Gin)
  • 1.5oz berry juice (we use V8 blueberry/pom but can be subbed for pure blackberry or raspberry juice)
  • 1/2oz mint & lime simple syrup
  • 3.5oz black cherry seltzer (can sub for any berry soda)
  • 2-3 blackberries
  • Mint leaves & lime wheel for garnish


  1. Combine Bourbon (or Gin/Vodka) with berry juice, one blackberry, and mint and lime simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Muddle ingredients together, add ice, and shake.
  3. Strain into a glass with fresh ice & top with cherry seltzer water.
  4. Garnish with a mint sprig, lime wheel and blackberry skewer.
    Note: This recipe is very veristile! While we originally designed it as a Bourbon cocktail with blackberries, you can make many variations to suit your menu or preference. The spirit can be subsituted for Gin or Vodka, and the "berries" in cocktail (juice, seltzer and garnish) can be substituted depending on what is available or in season.
