LINK: The Everyday Hostess


  • 8 blackberries
  • 4 sage leaves
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • 1 chunk of dry ice

Cocktail shaker and muddler needed


1. Put blackberries, sage leaves and sugar in cocktail shaker and muddle together (if you don’t have a muddler, a large spoon will suffice… the idea is to crush the berries and leaves to get the juices out)
2. Add lemon juice, Grand Marnier, bitters and tequila
3. Shake well
4. Place chunk of dry ice in a glass (a little goes a long way here, and use tongs to grab the dry ice! You’ll regret touching it with your bare skin)
5. Pour mixture over dry ice for smoking effect
6. Serve with a straw and enjoy!
