whiskey smash

"I just realized this is like a whiskey mojito." - JD

What you'll need:
1 1/2 oz of whiskey (we used Bulliet rye)
3/4 oz of simple syrup
1 oz of water (or soda water)
2 slices of lemon
2 - 3 mint leaves

To make:
Muddle lemon, mint, simple syrup, and water. 
Add whiskey, shake, and strain into a glass over ice.
Garnish with mint, serve, and enjoy!

It really is that simple and it's delicious. As JD said, we may never leave the house for cocktails again. Over the course of the evening we tried a few different variations, substituting honey for simple syrup and alternating flat and fizzy water. All worked well and I highly recommend giving this one a try.
