Strawberry Whiskey Smash

Picture of Heather Wibbels, Cocktail Contessa, pouring a cocktailHeather Wibbels
Set your summer sip apart with a fresh muddle of strawberries, some bright strawberry syrup, a touch of citrus, and a healthy dose of whiskey in this summery Strawberry Whiskey Smash. You can make it with any fruit, just swap out what you’re muddling in the bottom of the shaking tin and choose a simple syrup to match or complement the flavor.
