This maple bourbon smash is a refreshing bourbon cocktail that’s full of flavor: perfectly balanced and tangy, with a hint of mint.


  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) bourbon
  • 1/4 lemon, sliced into 2 wedges
  • 5 large mint leaves
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) maple syrup or simple syrup
  • Soda water, for serving
  • Crushed ice, for serving


  1. Place the lemon wedges and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Muddle 4 to 5 times to extract flavor. (Here’s more on How to Muddle Mint.)
  2. Add the bourbon and maple syrup and fill the shaker with ice. If desired, add a splash of soda water. Shake until cold and strain into a glass. Serve with crushed ice.
