We asked Redemption Whiskey ambassador Matt Klette to supply us with his idea of the essential summer cocktail.
He delivered with the Whiskey Smash—a summery blend of fresh berries, basil, and bourbon.
Muddle basil and blackberries lightly in the bottom of a shaker.
Add bourbon, Licor 43, and lemon juice. Top with crushed ice, stir lightly, and serve.
