Strawberry Bourbon Smash

Strawberry Bourbon Smash

Our first trip to Nashville, we stumble upon this drink at a bar and it quickly became our drink of choice for the weekend. It's smooth, not overly sweet, and the carbonation of the ginger beer adds a nice refreshing note. Below is my recreation of this cocktail.

  • Ingredients

    Serving size: one delicious drink
     

    • 2 oz of bourbon
       
    • 1/2 lemon juiced
       
    • 1/2 oz of organic agave
       
    • 2 medium to large strawberries
       
    • 2-3 oz of ginger beer
       
    • Ice
  • Directions

    1. Muddle the strawberries, lemon juice, and agave in a shaker.
       
    2. Add bourbon and ice to the shaker then shake it, shake it real good.
       
    3. Strain over ice, top with the 2 oz of ginger beer, and give it a good stir. I prefer mine with only 2 oz of ginger beer because I like a stronger bourbon flavor but if you prefer add the extra shot of ginger beer to help balance the bourbon.
