Living a happy life with a glass of wine in hand

Blackberry Whiskey Sour

I feel like this blackberry whiskey sour would be best enjoyed in a dimly lit bar where everyone else is wayyy cooler than I am. Or in my basement next to my daughter’s playroom while recording an episode of the Crunchy Cocktail Hour. That works too.

Dark liquors aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. I certainly get that. I typically lean more towards a gin cocktail rather than a whiskey/bourbon/brandy one. But don’t let that deter you! There are some seriously fantastic cocktails that are made with dark liquors and the darker liquors can have more variety and complexity. So if you’re up for it, try the Blackberry Whiskey Sour that Larisa says will ‘give you hair’.

Really can’t get on board with whiskey? I got you. Try one of these:

Hair Health

On Episode 12 (what?!) of the Crunchy Cocktail Hour, we get into a topic that is really personal for me – hair health. If you’ve read my Hair Hair Everywhere post, you know that I experienced hair loss due to an illness several years back. It was then that I took serious control of my hair health. While I don’t think I’ll ever be able to describe my hair as ‘full’ or ‘thick’, I can most certainly describe it as healthy. That’s enough for me.

Blackberry Whiskey Sour

To really knock this one out of the park, I highly recommend stocking up on a few key cocktail accessories. The first is a large ice cube tray. These ice cubes will fill up your entire rocks glass and really elevate the look of your cocktail. The second is a long cocktail spoon. This allows you to stir around the ice cube and mix ingredients in the glass without shaking (which would add a bit of a foam). I’ve also included an absolutely beautiful cocktail accessory set (in case you need a shaker and jigger as well) and some rocks glasses that are similar to the mine. Here are my recommendations:

Recipe Notes

Seeming a little strong? Try a sugar rim to sweeten in up or top it off with a bit of club soda!
