Cocktail of the week: Black-beery whiskey smash

It's Friday and let's face it, the only question we're currently asking ourselves is "where are the drinks?" From margaritas to wine, we can't wait to ditch our desks and head to the nearest cocktail, wherever that may be. So today, in honor of the upcoming weekend -- we've got a delicious cocktail just for you that is sure to wipe away all your workweek blues.

Allow us to introduce you to the Black-beery Whiskey Smash from lifestyle blogger, Domesticate ME!

¼ cup fresh blackberries
Juice of ½ lemon
6 fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons raw sugar
2 ounces bourbon whiskey
2 ounces wheat beer
For garnish (optional)
Mint sprig

1. Muddle fresh blackberries, lemon juice, mint leaves and sugar in a highball glass. Stir in the whiskey. Add ice (crushed if possible) and top with wheat beer.
2. If you're feeling fancy, cut a wooden skewer so that it's slightly taller than your glass. Thread 4-5 blackberries onto the skewer and add it to your cocktail along with a sprig of fresh mint.
