Summer Special Bella Donna

Summer Special Bella Donna

Enjoy a wonderful drink during the summer time and otherwise. The Belladonna is one of the easiest tiki-style cocktails you can make. I say that because all you have to remember is the few ingredients.

TOTAL TIME:15 min Prep:10 min ~ Cook: 5 min YIELD:1 serving LEVEL:Easy


2 ounces bourbon (recommended: Maker's Mark)

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/2 ounce fresh orange juice

1/2 ounce Sugar Gum, recipe follows

2 dashes bitters (recommended: Peychaud's)

Ice cubes, for shaking

Pinch fresh mint

Shaved ice

4 muddled blackberries


1/2 cup fine sugar


Add the bourbon, juices, Sugar Gum and bitters to a metal cocktail shaker. Top with ice cubes, seal and shake vigorously. 

Fill a small mason jar with ice cubes and fresh mint. Strain the liquid over the ice and stir. Top with shaved ice. Garnish with the muddled blackberries.
