Maple Bourbon Smash
- ¾ ounce Vermont Maple Syrup*
- 6-8 mint leaves
- 2 ounces bourbon whiskey
Put the maple syrup and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker and muddle mint until mint has darkened and is quite fragrant. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and add the bourbon. Stir vigorously until well chilled.
Fill a rocks glass or similar style glass with ice and strain chilled cocktail into glass. Garnish with mint and serve.
*In taste tests, we preferred Vermont Grade A Golden Color with Delicate Taste for this cocktail.
