Nectarine Rye Smash

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Recipe from Drinks by Wild, from Craft Cocktail Club

I saw this drink posted, and knew I would make it this weekend. I had seen some great looking nectarines in one of our local butcher/deli places here, along Haarlemerdijk, and knew they would suit this drink perfectly.

We had a couple of friends around for dinner tonight. And I tried not to knock one of them out this time with a rum forward drink.

This was a successful winner.

  • Recipe
  • 60ml Rye Whiskey-I used Bulleit
  • 30ml Lemon Juice
  • 22.5ml Honey Syrup
  • 1/2 Nectarine
  • 3 dashes angostura bitters

Muddle nectarine, lemon and honey syrup in a mixing tin, add the mint and give a gentle press, add rye and shake with ice.

Strain into a collins glass filled with crushed ice.

Top with a few dashes of bitters and garnish with a mint sprig and nectarine slice.
