Bourbon Peach Mint Smash


  • Author: Josh Johnson

Ingredients

  • Handful of diced peaches
  • 2-3 mint leaves
  • 1.5 oz. honey simple syrup
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • Crushed ice

Instructions

  1. Start by making the simple syrup by combining equal parts water + honey (i.e. 1 cup of water and 1 cup of honey), bring to boil, and then reduce the heat to low stirring continuously until all honey is dissolved (roughly 3-5 minutes). Set aside to allow to cool to room temperate before making the cocktails.
  2. While syrup is cooling rinse, pit, and dice 2 large peaches. Set aside.
  3. Once syrup is cool combine peaches, mint, and syrup in a glass.
  4. Muddle until all ingredients are melded together.
  5. Add crushed ice, filling to top of glass.
  6. Pour bourbon over the ice, stir to combine, and enjoy.

Notes

  • 2 large peaches, pitted and diced, will make 4 drinks.
  • Simple syrup will last up to a week and is great in your morning coffee, because of that I’d recommend making a batch prior to making the cocktails. If the syrup is fresh and too hot the ice will melt once it hits the glass.
