7UP Whiskey Smash

  • 3 tablespoons mint leaves (about 7 or 8 leaves)
  • half of one lemon, cut into four pieces
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • Top off with 7UP

Place the mint, lemon, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Muddle together until the sugar has dissolved and the lemon has expressed its juices.

Add the whiskey and 7UP, cover, and shake for 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to an Old Fashioned glass.

Top with crushed ice and garnish with a sprig of mint.
