  • 3 Basil Leaves
  • 1/4 cup Blackberries
  • 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 oz White Whiskey
  • Soda Water
  • Ice
  • Blackberries and Basil for garnish


  • Muddle together the basil leaves, blackberries, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a glass.

If you don't have white whiskey, regular whiskey or bourbon works well, too.
