Blackberry, Plum, & Basil Smash

  • Base Spirit Rum
  • Preparation Muddled & Stirred
  • Flavor Fruity
  • Served On the Rocks

Relax, kick back, and raise a (mason jar) glass to summer with this delicious rum smash using fresh blackberries, plums and basil. The formula is essentially a rum rickey riff, but the flavor profile is all about the fruit with the rum serving to tie it all together.
