Apricot Smash

And the winning cocktail is... Apricot Smash

After tasting the other cocktails we decided that the flavor of the apricot really shone through when muddled with bulleit bourbon and chocolate mint picked from my garden. This drink will be on the menu for the next few weeks.

Our next project will be making an apricot brandy. I hope to revisit some of the other drinks once the apricot brandy is ready, which should be in a few weeks. This will also allow us to make apricot cocktails year round. I know I will be looking forward to an apricot cocktail this winter, accompanied by a delicious braised lamb dish of some sort.

Here is the revised recipe:

Apricot Smash
1/2 apricot
5 sprigs chocolate mint
3/4 fresh lemon
1 oz simple syrup (less depending on the sweetness of the apricot)
2 oz bulleit bourbon

muddle apricot and mint. add lemon, simple and bourbon. shake and strain over rocks. top with soda and garnish with sprig of chocolate mint.
