Whiskey Smash

June 7, 2013 (Day 28) – Whiskey Smash

The Professor Jerry Thomas described smashes as “a julep on a small plan.”

Once you see the ingredients you’ll notice the similarities between this and just about any number of julep.

(Adjustments in recipe are made, following the conversion that appear in Imbibe! by David Wondrich)

  • 1/2 table-spoonful (1 tsp) white sugar
  • 1 table-spoonful (2 tsp) of water
  • 1 wine-glass (2 oz) of bourbon
  • 2 springs fresh mint

Fill a cocktail shaker with shaved ice and then top with the sugar, water, bourbon, and mint. Shake thoroughly and then strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with another sprig of mint.
