Gin Smash

The Gin Smash is probably the most simple of smashes, involving the muddling of only mint (the most common smash ingredient.) The Sadie Smash and the Scotch Smash have more going on. Mint makes the gin cocktail taste a lot like a Mint Julep and the preparation of it is pretty much the same.
  • 3 oz. gin
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 oz. sparkling water
  • 4 mint sprigs
  • lemon twist
In an Old Fashioned glass muddle mint leaves, sugar and sparkling water to release the mint aromas and dissolved the sugar. Add ice and gin and stir until ingredients are well mixed. Garnish with lemon twist.
