Description

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.


Ingredients

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

Instructions

  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 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.
