The Whiskey Smash

The Whiskey Smash is as old as the hills. Well, the late 1800’s actually, this is a truly refreshing cocktail. Similar to it’s older sibling, the Mint Julep, but minus the faff and with the added hit of citrus. The Whiskey Smash makes a great starter cocktail for those new to Bourbon

INGREDIENTS

  • 6-8 leaves of mint
  • 1/4 Lemon chopped into 3
  • 2 tbsp Simple Syrup
  • 2 measures of Bourbon
  • Mint to garnish

METHOD

Muddle the mint and lemon in a cocktail shaker gently to release the oils. Add the syrup and Bourbon and fill with ice. ShakeVigourously for 30 seconds then strain into an Old Fahioned glass filled with crushed ice and garnish with Mint.
