This Smashberry Cocktail was such a hit at this years Vibe Conference, we decided to share the recipe! Featuring Monin Blueberry Puree, Sipsmith Gin, fresh thyme, lemon, and Monin Pure Cane Syrup. It is a knockout of a drink, handcrafted over crushed ice. Enjoy!

1/2 ounce Monin Blueberry Puree

Bend and drop the thyme into a pint glass. Measure in the Monin Blueberry Puree, gin, lemon and Pure Cane. Fill with ice, cap and shake well.
