This week we're talking blogs and blogging while sipping a Blackberry Bourbon Smash that Erica mixed up. It was a beautiful breezy weekend here in the desert, so it's the perfect we're-holding-on-to-cool-weather cocktail.
Blackberry Bourbon Smash
(adapted from Minimalist Baker)
makes 1 drink
- 2 Tbsp preserves or jam of choice (I used blackberry)
- 2 Tbsp bourbon (I used Maker's Mark)
- 1 Tbsp triple sec
- 2-3 Tbsp orange juice
- Orange wedges
- A splash of club soda or sparkling water
Add about 1/2 cup ice, preserves, bourbon, triple sec and orange juice to a shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
Strain into serving glass with a few ice cubes and top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with orange slices and enjoy. Repeat for more drinks, or double the recipe in the shaker for 2!
In this episode we talk about why we started blogs, what bloggers inspire us and why we keep on blogging, despite making negative dollars on our blogs each month.
