Blackberry Sage Tequila Smash

Originally created with a roll of our Mixology Dice, this drink has become a favorite! We used the ingredients that we rolled here, but you can make a smash with any spirit, sugar, citrus, fruit & herb. So if you don't have blackberries or you don't love tequila for instance, go ahead and switch them out for strawberries or gin.  

RECIPE:
2 oz. tequila
1 oz. grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed)
3 large blackberries
8 sage leaves
2 cane sugar cubes

In a large cocktail shaker, muddle blackberry, sage, & sugar. Add tequila, grapefruit juice & crushed ice. Shake well, then pour everything into 12-oz. rocks glass or julep cup (you can also use a mason jar like we did). Garnish with sage and serve. Or, if you prefer a cleaner drink, strain into glass over crushed ice.
