Strawberry & Blueberry Whiskey Cocktail

My rum and gin has been pushed to the back of the bar for a break while we focus on whiskey, scotch, and bourbon. I can't yet shake the desire to include fresh fruit yet, so for the rest of the month we'll share more drinks with a summer & fall hybrid.

2 ounces clear corn whiskey (such as Moonshine)
1 ounce strawberry simple syrup
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
Strawberry for garnish

Directions Muddle the strawberries with the whiskey and strain into a shaker. Add the simple syrup and ice, and shake well. Strain into a low ball filled with ice or into a martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry.
