The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.

whisky smash

Saturday, 27 April 2013

currently far and away my wife’s favorite drink — first drank at founding farmers, here in washington, dc:


  • 3 oz. whisky
  • 1.5 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/4 lemon (or tablespoon of lemon juice)
  • 2-3 dashes of bitters
  • 5 mint leaves


Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, mash mint leaves, lemon half, and Simple Syrup in a 16-oz. mixing glass or a cocktail shaker 4–5 times just to release juices and oils. Add bourbon. Transfer to an Old Fashioned glass. Fill halfway with crushed ice, stir, then mound more crushed ice on top. Garnish with mint sprigs.
