This delicious cocktail is the perfect compliment to the yummy Crown Royal Blackberry whiskey. It has sweet flavor with citrusy lime to help cut the sweetness and make it the most refreshing and tasty blend of flavors. Muddled fresh blackberries give this cocktail impeccable flavor.

If you need a new summer cocktail drink to sip on, you have to try this one. It’s quickly become one of my favorites.

Crown Royal Blackberry

The star of this drink is definitely the new crown royal blackberry flavored whiskey. I found it at my local Liquor store and absolutely had to try it out. The flavor profile is a sweet blackberry whiskey that pairs so well with a variety of flavors. Here is the description for it from the Crown Royal website:

Our new Crown Royal Blackberry Flavored Whisky is a limited edition for the summer season! To create this extraordinary blend, Crown Royal whiskies are carefully selected by our master blender and infused with the juicy flavor of fresh blackberries. The harmonious notes of this summer fruit complement the signature richness of Crown Royal Blended Whisky. The result is a vibrantly delicious whisky, bursting with the luscious flavor of Blackberry and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal.

What flavors pair well with Blackberry?

Blackberry has a unique flavor profile that can be complemented by a variety of other flavors. Here are some combinations that work well:

  1. Citrus: The tartness of citrus fruits like lemon, orange, or lime can enhance the sweetness of blackberries.
  2. Mint: Mint adds a refreshing and cooling element to the sweet and slightly tart flavor of blackberries.
  3. Vanilla: The warmth and sweetness of vanilla can enhance the natural sweetness of blackberries without overpowering them.
  4. Ginger: The spiciness of ginger can add a nice contrast to the sweetness of blackberries, creating a complex flavor profile.
  5. Basil: Basil’s slightly peppery and herbal notes can complement the sweetness of blackberries, creating an interesting flavor combination.
  6. Lavender: Lavender adds a floral and aromatic note that pairs well with the sweetness of blackberries, creating a sophisticated flavor profile.
  7. Almond: The nuttiness of almonds can provide a delicious contrast to the sweetness of blackberries, whether in the form of almond extract, chopped almonds, or almond meal.
  8. Chocolate: Dark chocolate can complement the sweetness of blackberries while adding richness and depth to desserts or baked goods.
  9. Cinnamon: Cinnamon’s warm and spicy flavor can enhance the natural sweetness of blackberries, creating a cozy and comforting combination.

For the Blackberry Vanilla Cream cocktail, we incorporated a few of these flavors. We have fresh lime, simple syrup, and sweet vanilla flavor.

Can you make simple syrup?

Yes, you can definitely make simple syrup at home. I always make mine at home, and store it in an airtight container.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a saucepan, combine the granulated sugar and water.
  2. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar has completely dissolved. This usually takes 3-5 minutes.
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove the saucepan from the heat and let the syrup cool to room temperature.
  4. Transfer the simple syrup to a clean, airtight container (such as a glass jar or bottle) for storage. It can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one month.

Note: You can adjust the ratio of sugar to water depending on how thick or thin you want your simple syrup to be. A 1:1 ratio (equal parts sugar and water) is the most common, but you can also make a richer syrup with a 2:1 ratio (two parts sugar to one part water) or a lighter syrup with a 1:2 ratio (one part sugar to two parts water).
