The Sinatra Smash is a delicious berry-vanilla cocktail by Patricia Richards of the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas. In its original form, it was a bit cloyingly sweet; we’ve incorporated some great suggestions from Frederic Yarm over at the Cocktail Virgin blog to bring it more in balance.
Muddle the blackberries and lemon juice in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake well. Strain (double-strain if you prefer) into a short glass filled with crushed ice, and garnish with fresh mint and berries.
