Blackberry-Mint Julep

Like the original, our julep features bourbon infused with mint. But this drink's signature sweetness is tempered by the tartness of blackberries, which also tint it a gorgeous shade of purple. Another twist: Our cocktail is blended with -- rather than served over -- ice, creating a slushy texture.
