Freeforall Friday- Happy Hour

It's Friday friends and finally! We'll meet you down at the bar for a drink or too. I'm dreaming of one like this Blackberry Smash by Andrew and Carrie from Pictures and Pancakes via Designsponge.

Isn't it lovely? If you'd like to make me one here's the recipe:

Blackberry Smash
  • 5 blackberries
  • 6-8 mint leaves, torn (plus more for garnish)
  • ½ small red plum, peeled and diced (plus more for garnish)
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • ½ ounce cointreau
  • 2 ounces whiskey
In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries, mint, plum and simple syrup until broken up. Add ice, cointreau and whiskey. Shake vigorously 12 to 15 seconds. Strain into a low ball glass filled with ice and garnish with a slice of plum and sprig of mint. Enjoy!

Blackberry smashes aside what do you have in mind? A cold beer, a glass of wine or something a little more adventurous? Do tell!
Oh and FYI my Aunt Jane makes a rockin' chocolate martini if you're in the Strathroy region.....

Love and Hugs and Happy Weekend!
