Labor Day Libation: Refreshing Cocktail to Toast the End of Summer

The last blast of summer is almost here so it’s time to plan one more final BBQ. You’ve got the hotdogs, burgers and potato salad. All that’s missing is a chilled cocktail that embodies the flavors of summer. The following recipe from Maker’s Mark is elegant yet easy for anyone to make and pair well with food from the grill. 

WHISKEY SMASH

WHISKEY SMASH

Recipe by Dale DeGroff, Master Mixologist

Ingredients:

· 2 parts Maker’s Mark® Bourbon

· 4 mint leaves

· ¾ lemon

· 1 part simple syrup

· Lemon wheel, for garnish

· Sprig of mint, for garnish

Directions:

Muddle all ingredients except Maker’s Mark® Bourbon in a bar glass. Add the bourbon and shake with ice. Strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lemon wheel.

Maker’s Mark® is one of the finest Kentucky Bourbons with a soft, smooth flavor which stems from the use of red winter wheat in the mash bill instead of rye. In keeping with the founder’s dedication to heritage and handcraftsmanship, Maker’s Mark is aged to taste at its historic distillery in Loretto, KY. www.makersmark.com.
