Raspberry Bourbon Smash - delicious cocktail for spring or summer! Raspberry, fresh orange juice, and bourbon!

Happy Wednesday!

The week is half over!

That means we can have cocktails, right?

Guys, I have had a week.

And by a week, I mean all of 2016.

Is it over yet?

Raspberry Bourbon Smash - delicious cocktail for spring or summer! Raspberry, fresh orange juice, and bourbon!

Let me tell you about my new favorite cocktail.

I bought a bottle of bourbon months ago for a recipe and have been trying to get rid of it ever since. Which explains why I’ve only had bourbon cocktails on the blog this year (margaritas coming soon, I promise!) but omg, it’s the neverending bottle of bourbon.

Okay, so, this Raspberry Bourbon Smash recipe may look weird because it starts with jam.

Yeah, jam.

But I promise it works!

I was worried it would be super sweet but it really wasn’t. And the jam didn’t give it a weird texture or anything. I really enjoyed it and would totally make it again. I think this would be the perfect poolside drink and I bet you could even use fresh raspberries once berries are in season again!

(The cute little square ice cubes are made with these trays. I’m obsessed.)
