Whisky Smash Batch Cocktail
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped mint leaves
- 1/4 cup whole mint leaves
- 2 lemons, cut into wedges
- 1 bottle of good quality bourbon
Add the water and sugar to a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar is completely dissolved into the water, add the chopped mint leaves, remove from the heat, and allow to steep for 30 minutes.
Pour the simple syrup through a fine mesh strainer into an airtight bottle or container. Place in the refrigerator until party time.
Place the syrup, bourbon, whole mint leaves, and lemons wedges out with a sign that says "Mix 1 1/2 oz. bourbon + 1/2 oz. simple syrup, then garnish with mint and lemon". Serve over ice.
