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

Ice cubes, for shaking
Pinch fresh mint
4 muddled blackberries
