Whiskey Smash

We will we will smash you

We will we will smash you

We still have some mint, some of it usually survives late into the fall. It’d be a shame to let that go to waste. This recipe is adapted from one we found on Templeton Rye’s website.

Whiskey Smash

  • 2 oz rye
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 2 mint leaves

Muddle a mint leave in the bottom of a tumbler. Throw in some ice. Pour rye, simple syrup and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Strain into tumbler. Garnish with remaining mint leaf.
