Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade Ingredients

6 oz. lemonade – freshly squeezed or mixed, whatever you feel like.

How to Make a Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade Cocktail
Start by making a Blackberry Simple Syrup that brings the flavor to this lemonade cocktail. To make simple syrup, place blackberries and sugar in a medium saucepan on medium heat, and cook for 25 minutes.
PS: Set aside a few blackberries beforehand for garnish.
Stir the blueberry simple syrup mixture often and when you see the blackberries have softened, and a thick syrup has formed, remove from heat.
Strain the simple syrup using a mesh sieve to remove any seeds or chunks from the syrup. Then, let the syrup cool for 20 minutes. Once the syrup has cooled, combine it with Jack Daniels, lemonade, and sugar in a large shaker.
Add 3-4 pieces of ice and shake everything in the shaker to combine. Fill your drinking glasses 3/4 of the way with ice and pour the mixture into each glass.
Top each Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade Cocktail with a few blackberries and kick back while you sip and enjoy!
