Bourbon Rye Whiskey

#39: Whiskey Smash

May 22, 2020

Take a sip of another classic and enjoy the history of this fresh and bright muddled beverage. Oh, and laugh along with us at the name “Harry Johnson.”

Whiskey Smash Recipe:

1/2 LEMON, CUT INTO ABOUT 6 PIECES,
8 FRESH MINT LEAVES, PLUS MINT SPRIGS FOR GARNISH,
2 OUNCES BOURBON,
¼ OUNCE SIMPLE SYRUP.

Add lemon pieces and muddle in the shaker. Add the mint leaves to the shaker and very lightly muddle overtop of the lemons. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake with ice. Pour the shaker’s contents directly into a rocks glass (this is called rolling – that’s one of the fun things you can learn in a Masterclass). Use a straw or bar spoon to push mint to the bottom of the glass. Garnish with a straw and mint bouquet.
