  • 1-2 fresh basil leaves I used Greek basil, but sweet basil works perfectly too
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 ounce maple syrup
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 5-6 ice cubes
  • 1 lemon twist for garnish optional


  • Add basil, blueberries, and maple syrup to a shaker and muddle to release juices from the basil and blueberries.
  • Add in lemon juice, bourbon, and ice cubes.
  • Top shaker with lid and shake, shake, shake!
  • Pour into glass, add your lemon twist, and enjoy that smash.*


*Alternately, you can strain the cocktail into your glass to leave the basil and blueberries behind, but then it wouldn't be so much of a smash. It's tasty either way, though!
