  • 1 Cup sugar

  • 5 blackberries

  • 3/4 Fluid Ounce Alpine Preserve

  • 3/4 Fluid Ounce lemon juice

  • 1/2 Fluid Ounce Smoked Blackberry Syrup

Steps

    To make Smoked Blackberry Simple Syrup: Place blackberries on a grill mat and smoke for 15-20 minutes. Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
