I got the inspiration for this after seeing a short video of someone making a bourbon-based cocktail with blackberries and some sort of syrup, followed by the addition of smoke, but there was no explanation or audio or follow-up to describe the drink or precisely what’s in it. So, as usual, I made up my own. I was going to call it the “Blackberry Smoke,” but then remembered there’s an Atlanta-based band with that moniker, and I didn’t want to have to deal with C&Ds or other legal Nasty-Grams that might come my way. So here’s the Smokin’ Blackberry. You might say it’s a cousin to the Smokin’ Peach, even.
