Saffron Whiskey Smash
This cocktail is one of our favorites for a Friday afternoon – the Saffron Whiskey Smash. If you don’t have a muddler, use the handle of a wooden spoon.
1 lemon, quartered
7 medium mint leaves
2 oz bourbon
Mint leaf and slice of lemon for garnish
Muddle 3 of the lemon quarters in the bottom of a cocktail shaker (about 10 or so strong muddles).
Add mint leaves and muddle a few more times. Add the bourbon and simple syrup.
Fill the shaker with at least six ice cubes and shake for about 15 seconds.
Strain into a glass filled with ice.
Garnish with a sprig of mint and lemon slice.
