Cheers!

summer smashWell, happy Friday, friends!  After this crazy weather, it has turned out to be a lovely afternoon and it just so happens to be National Bourbon Day!  How fitting for a Friday!  So I wanted to leave you with a tasty summer drink to please your palate this weekend!  You can even serve one up to Dad on Sunday, as I’m sure he will enjoy as well!

This recipe is courtesy of my crafty sister…. can’t take the credit for the recipe, but I do take credit for consuming a few!  😉

Summer Smash

Makes 2.

In a cocktail shaker (oh how I love my mason shaker from West Elm), muddle 1/2 a peach with 6 basil leaves and 1 tablespoon of sugar.  Add a few dashes of rhubarb bitters and then a 1/2 cup of rye whiskey.  Serve over ice and splash with club soda.  Garnish with peach slices and basil.
