Blackberry Julep

READY IN: 3hrs 2mins
Recipe by echo echo

From Blackbird in New York (now closed). I substitute my Blackberry Liqueur (Blackberry Liqueur) for the Marie Brizard. Cooking time is actually time to marinate the berries.

This is really such a treat! I just happened to have fresh blackberries and simple syrup (made with a little mint) on hand to make this lovely julep : ) Very refreshing and light! Would be very nice served on a warm summer's evening ~ Thank you, Echo echo!
