there's a new-ish place around the corner from my apartment that is quickly becoming a favorite of my girlfriends and mine...lolita. my favorite drink there is a bourbon smash, but i can only have a max of 2 drinks, otherwise i'm in the hurt-box the whole next day. the boyfriend is a bourbon guy, me not so much, but these are gooood...i'm sort of craving one now...
4 lemon wedges
4 sprigs mint
1 ounce simple syrup
2 ounces bourbon whiskey
In a bar glass, muddle 3 lemon wedges and 3 sprigs of mint. Add the simple syrup and whisky. Fill the glass with shaved ice. Garnish with the remaining mint sprig and lemon wedge.
