Zen Smash - A Blueberry + Linden Flower Whiskey Smash

Starting off my weekend with a little rest, relaxation and this stress-relieving, antioxidant-rich cocktail. This cooling, calming drink features vibrant blueberries for their free-radical neutralizing anthocyanins, and the anxiety-reducing, mood-balancing power of linden flowers. And whiskey. 😉
