BB Gun

A simple, tangy blackberry shrub takes a turn for the tropical when mixed with aged rum and a good squeeze of fresh lime juice.  


1 1/2 oz. aged rum
1 oz. blackberry shrub
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup (1:1)

soda water
Tools: shaker tin, strainer
Glass: Collins
Garnish: fresh mint, lime wheel


Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass filled with fresh ice. Top with soda water. Garnish.


Blackberry shrub: Combine ½ cup of sugar and 2 cups of blackberries and let the mixture sit overnight. Add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and let the mixture sit for another 24 hours. Strain and store in the fridge until use or up to 1 month.
