Sinatra Smash Question

I've attempted to recreate the Sinatra Smash cocktail at home, and I have a question about it. Does anyone remember if the cocktail, itself, includes the muddled blackberries? Or are the muddled blackberries strained and replaced with whole blackberries? Any feedback is appreciated.

* 5-6 fresh blackberries
* 2 oz. fresh sweet & sour*
* ⅓ oz. Sonoma Vanilla Infused Simple Syrup
* ¾ oz. Briotett Créme de Cassis
* 2 oz. Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the blackberries with the sweet & sour. Add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice until chilled. Strain over cracked ice in an old fashioned glass. Garnish with a beautiful mint sprig.

*Fresh Sweet & Sour: Cut fresh lemons in half and extract the fresh juice. Strain. Combine equal parts of freshly squeezed and strained lemon juice with simple syrup (*see recipe below). Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready for use. Expires in 7 days.

To make simple syrup, dissolve equal amounts of granulated sugar and boiling water, allow to cool.

The cocktail contains muddled blackberries... definitely not replaced with whole blackberries.

Thanks for the input everyone. I'll be enjoying one in this glorious 71 degree weather here in Philly in about 30 minutes. Cheers!
