In American Whiskey Recipes

This is the time of year where it seems like every vegetable and herb in the garden are clamoring to be used – the harvest is abundant! The most classic version of the Smash uses mint to add an herbal layer, but the fresh basil from our distillery garden is also delicious in this summer sipper. It adds an herbal depth to this refreshing drink, great for sipping away the dog days of summer.

Summer Smash

2 oz American Whiskey
