Bourbon-Blackberry Cocktail Recipe

We're all about a good whiskey cocktail. So when we heard about this bourbon and blackberry sipper from Jack Rose Dining Saloon in D.C., we had to try it out. Bourbon is stirred with blackberry preserves and lemon for a tart and ever-so-sweet drink that will quench your thirst in the best way possible.

The charred cinnamon stick adds the perfect smoky aroma. Simply use metal tongs to pass the stick back and forth in a flame. If you don't have a blowtorch handy, a gas burner will work. Or you can toast the stick in a pan until fragrant.
