For something with a bit more spice than a typical whiskey smash, I decided to bring some ginger syrup into the mix. The fresh lemon brightness is refreshing and with the ginger, it adds just a bit of warmth. This is a nice twist for a slightly cooler spring day.
- 3 oz bourbon
- 1/2oz lemon juice
- 1/2 oz ginger syrup
- fresh mint garnish
Add all ingredients except the mint into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain over a large ice cube in a rocks glass. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
