Perfect for sunny summer days, the Blackberry Refresher creates a bourbon-infused cocktail anyone will enjoy.
Muddled blackberries and simple syrup join together with a splash of lemon juice to create a refreshing, homemade lemonade. A few ounces of San Antonio's own Ranger Creek .36 Straight Bourbon gives the drink a smokey, caramel characteristic that is balanced with acid and sweetness.
Whether relaxing poolside or looking for a delicious cocktail to enjoy with friends, the Blackberry Refresher is approachable for all bourbon and non-bourbon aficionados.
If you are a guest at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, you can ask for the Blackberry Refresher while floating the 1,100 foot long lazy river in the 9-acre water park or while sitting in a rocking chair overlooking the uninterrupted views of the Texas Hill Country vistas off the resort’s back porch.
