The Spyglass Minntucky Smash

It’s Triple Crown season, and while some are still celebrating the controversial Derby at their Country House, disgruntled others remain in Maximum Security, licking their wounds. Or perhaps you identified with the rambunctious Bodexpress, who ejected his jockey at the starting gate and ran barebacked around the Preakness track twice!  Whether you play the ponies or simply fancy long shots or juleps, we invite you to sample this delicious May libation—perfect for sipping on the patio or swilling by the grill!

This creative take on the classic whiskey smash pairs Kentucky bourbon with Minnesota maple syrup to sweeten the pot.

The Spyglass Minntucky Smash
3 parts Kentucky bourbon
1 part fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 part MN maple syrup
1 bunch fresh mint

Cut lemons in half and squeeze or juice into a measuring cup. Muddle mint in shaker. Add bourbon and lemon juice in 3:1 ratio. Sweeten to taste. Fill shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Pour into glass with ice and garnish with mint.

Raise a glass to spring!
