Whiskey Wednesday: Blackberry Whiskey Punch

Happy Hump Day guys!!!
In 2015, I started a fun new blog series -

A few months ago I ran across this recipe* shared by a friend on Facebook.
While it sounded amazing, I'm really not a fan of tequila.
But I quickly realized I could replace the tequila with whiskey,
and that's how I came up with this month's Whiskey Wednesday drink.

The Goods:
Fresh Mint
Club Soda

Slice three limes pretty thin.

Wash your blackberries and add to a medium bowl.

Using a fork, mash up all the blackberries creating lots of juice.

Measure out 1 cup of bourbon...

And then add it to the mashed up blackberries.

Now add the sliced limes...

And the leaves from three sprigs of mint...

Stir it all up to combine.
Let sit at least 30 minutes, but preferably a few hours!

Right before serving, add in one can of club soda...

Followed by one bottle of ginger beer.

 Stir to combine.

Get your glasses and garnished prepped.

And serve up the drinks for you and your friends!

Last thing to do is cheers, take a sip and enjoy!!!

After making these, I realized you could not only make these with whiskey or tequila,
and can pretty much substitute any type of liquor that you're a fan of.
In fact, I've already tried it out with vodka too and they were just as tasty!
I'm sure using a different type of berry would be pretty delicious as well.

*The linked recipe above makes a total of 8 drinks, 
but can easily be halved or even multiplied for big parties!
My pictures and instructions include enough for 4 drinks.
