Blackberry Smash

When your summer barbeque calls for something a little different… a little more FUN… try our Blackberry Smash

Blackberry Smash with Black Currant Flavour image

It’s not JUST blackberries though. The addition of Black Currant Flavour takes this drink to a whole new level and really makes the blackberries sing. The flavour combination is bright and refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness. The mint and lime add a tropical zest to this bourbon-based alcoholic drink, or make it a mocktail lemonade instead that the whole family can enjoy! 

We guarantee this drink will be a smash at your next get-together!
