Bourbon Smash

Posted by Alayne Gardner-Carimi on

The classic Bourbon Smash! Adding a lemony lilt to the traditional Mint Julep, this sweet-tart cocktail is refreshing and nuanced. Perfect for any occasion, even the non-bourbon drinkers will like this cocktail! 

Ingredients (serves 1)
½ medium lemon, cut into wedges
6 large mint leaves
¾ oz simple syrup
2 oz your favorite vomFASS Bourbon

Slice a lemon in half then into wedges and add to a cocktail shaker with fresh mint and simple syrup.
Using a muddler, gently mash the lemon and mint to release their flavor (about 12 smashes).
Pour bourbon into the shaker. 
Fill with ice cubes and stir vigorously until well-chilled.
Fill a rocks glass with ice and strain the bourbon smash into the glass. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and enjoy.
