“Some of my earliest summer memories are of picking blackberries and blueberries with my grandma, so to me, summertime has always been berry time. I love working with whiskey, so in trying to figure out how to have a whiskey cocktail on the menu while also incorporating those berry flavors, I came up with this take on a bourbon smash. The tartness of the lemon balances out the fruity juiciness of the blueberries, and they both play well with the toasty, vanilla notes of the bourbon. It’s a warm weather inspired cocktail, and it’s super easy-drinking. Lantern’s official cocktail christener Phil Morrison named the drink after a song by New Orleans jazz pianist Professor Longhair.” Sarah Vickery, The Lantern, Chapel HillWalk Right In8-12 blueberries2 sugar cubesÂ½ ounce fresh lemon juice1 dash Angostura bitters2 ounces bourbonIn a rocks glass, muddle blueberries, sugar cubes, lemon juice, and bitters.
