This Blackberry Gin Smash is summer in a glass - with juicy blackberries, bright citrus, botanical gin, herbaceous thyme & sweetly floral St. Germain & elderflower tonic.


  • 2 lemons (- freshly squeezed)
  • 22 fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh thyme
  • 4 ounces gin
  • 3 ounces St. Germain
  • 4 ounces elderflower tonic water (- or plain tonic water)


  1. Add 16 fresh blackberries, the juice of 2 lemons, 8 sprigs of fresh thyme and 1 ounce of St. Germain to a mason jar. Use a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon to coarsely crush the blackberries and thyme until the berries are broken down and the thyme is aromatic. 
  2. Strain the syrup evenly into 2 glasses then add 2 ounces of gin and 1 ounce of St. Germain to each glass. Stir together, then layer in ice and a few sliced blackberries. 
  3. Top each with sparkly elderflower tonic water. Garnish with plump, juicy blackberries and tendrils of fresh thyme. Serve immediately and enjoy with someone you love or really really like.
