smoked berry cocktail
1/2 Cup Strawberries, Fresh Washed and Stemmed
1/2 Cup blackberries
1/2 Cup Blueberries
8 Ounce bourbon
2 Ounce lime juice
3 Ounce Simple Syrup
As Needed soda water
When ready to cook, set grill temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place the washed berries on a clean cookie sheet and place on the grill. Smoke berries for 15 minutes.
Remove from grill and transfer to a blender. Puree berries until smooth then pass thru fine mesh strainer to remove seeds.
To serve, pour 2 oz of berry puree in the bottom of a glass.
To create a layered cocktail, pour 2 oz bourbon or iced tea next over the back of a spoon into the glass, then 1/2 oz lime juice and 1/2 oz simple syrup, then soda water.
Scoop a little bit of ice in the top and finish with mint or extra berries for garnish. Repeat the same process with the remaining 3 glasses. Enjoy!
