This whiskey smash is a classic cocktail that’s tangy and refreshing, featuring lemon juice and mint — it’s like a citrus spin on the mint julep.
- 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.)
- Add the whiskey and maple syrup and fill the shaker with ice. Shake until cold and strain into a glass. If desired, add a splash of soda water. Serve with crushed ice.
