Working towards the weekend, Wednesdays are neither here nor there: the past weekend’s shine is fading and the upcoming weekend is just beyond reach… good thing Fruitations isn’t! Here’s a favorite to enhance your mood: a simple, easy pick-me-up cocktail fit for a Wednesday afternoon, crafted by one of Fruitations’ biggest supporters Michael Ray (@dmtmixer007).
Fruitations Cranberry Smash by Michael Ray
1 ½ ounces whiskey or bourbon (try TINCUP Whiskey!)
1 ounce Fruitations Cranberry
½ ounce simple syrup
2 lemon wedges
3 robust mint leaves
In a shaker or tall glass, gently muddle mint and lemon; add the rest of the ingredients and ice, then shake really hard ‘til super cold. You can pour it straight into a glass or get fancy and double strain over fresh ice. Garnish with mint leaves. As always, adjust to your preferences.
