Coconut + Rosewater Blackberry Smash

Umm… rosewater? SOLD. Literally, my exact reaction when I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest the other day. The beautiful ombré of muddled of blackberries resting beneath a billowing cloud of créme de coconut was the most visually beautiful cocktail I’ve seen in quite awhile. Needless to say, this jewel hued gin sip did not disappoint. In fact, I made it twice to style and photograph it two different ways… because... well… I mean, duhhh.

Take a peek at this easy, tasty, and oh-so-beautiful gin recipe below that’s sure to wow your guests.

Cheers, babes!


Coconut + Rosewater Blackberry Smash


  • 2 oz gin

  • 1 oz cream of coconut (Coco Lopez)

  • .75 oz fresh squeezed/strained lime juice

  • ¼ tsp rosewater

  • blackberries


  1. Muddle one blackberry in the bottom of a rocks glass, then top with crushed ice.

  2. Shake all remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice for 5 seconds only.

  3. Pour over the crushed ice, give it a light stir, then top with more crushed ice and blackberries. It's easiest to drink this one with a straw (I have small metal ones, but you can also cut paper ones in half).
