Sage Blackberry Bourbon Smash | Nic's Trattoria

From Nic's Trattoria, Bar Manager Drew Harris brings his West Coast sensibilities to the East Coast and serves up a bourbon smash built around blackberry jam and savory simmered sage. Although served cold, this Kitchen Raid cocktail could work just as well served hot, or reduced to a glaze for ribs and roast turkey. Check out more at Nic's Trattoria
