Peach Berry Smash

This cocktail comes to us from Allison Barger Eddy, aka @tiptoeingthrujuleps on Instagram.  Allison writes:

For these hot summer days, I have fully embraced the pre-batched-mason-jar-cocktail trend. Just combine your cocktail ingredients in a mason jar and store it in the fridge until go time. Then add ice, shake it up, and enjoy! It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

Today’s #frontporchsipper took advantage of a strawberry-peach simple syrup I made last week and some of the fresh fruit that we can’t get enough of these days. The sweet, tart, fruity flavors at play here still allow the rye to shine... and what a good rye it is! (So good that I used my “backup” bottle for these photos rather than the almost-empty bottle that’s sitting on my bar shelf.)

2 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye 92-proof Rye Whisky
½ oz Grand Marnier / Orange Liqueur
¾ oz Lemon Juice
½ oz Strawberry-peach simple syrup
Approx. 3 strawberries, hulled and halved
Approx. 4 slices of fresh peach
Mint sprig, for garnish

In a mason jar, combine all ingredients except garnish. Screw on the lid to the mason jar and store in fridge until ready to drink. When you’re ready to have your cocktail, add ice to the mason jar, screw on the lid, and shake everything together. Remove the lid, insert the mint sprig and a straw, and enjoy!
