Shamrock Smash

 

What you'll need:

 

-2 oz. Irish Whiskey

-1.2 oz. Green Chartreuse

-Juice of half a lemon

-Fresh mint leaves, about 8-10 and a little extra to garnish

-Splash of Crème de Menthe

-1 oz. Simple Syrup (check out my Simple Syrup recipe)

 

Cocktail Directions:

 

1. In a shaker glass combine the first four ingredients and muddle them all together.

 

2. Once muddled, add a splash of Crème de Menthe and Simple Syrup.

 

3. Next add some ice to your shaker glass and shake it real good! Strain the mix into an ice filled glass. As an extra garnish I like to throw in some cucumber slices.

 

Cheers!
