Whiskey Smash

Whiskey may make you think of winter but the Whiskey Smash will change your mind.  It is bright, fresh and a light cocktail.  Again, squeezing your own fresh lemon juice will make all the difference so take the extra time to juice a few lemons.

Fresh Lemon Juice



Simple Syrup or Agave Syrup

The picture is a bit misleading since I used a blend of Whiskey and Rye, an all Rye version is fantastic as well.  Either muddle the Mint at the bottom of the glass or give it a good clap between your hands to release the oils.  Fill the glass with ice and fill it 2/3 with Lemon Juice (about 3-4 lemons) and 1/3 Whiskey.  It is pretty tart as is so a shot of Simple Syrup helps to balance out the cocktail.
