The Smash is a type of cocktail that is characterized by its use of fresh herbs, fruit, and citrus. Other popular Smash cocktails include the Gin Smash, the Mint Julep, and the Mojito.
History of the Drink
The history of the Smash dates back to the early 19th Century, when it was a popular drink among the upper class in the United States. The oriGinal recipe called for Brandy, Sugar, and mint, but as the cocktail gained popularity, variations emerged that used different spirits and mixers. The Mint Julep is a classic Southern cocktail and is a variation of the Smash that uses Bourbon instead of Brandy by adding crushed ice for a frosty finish. Today, the Smash remains a popular cocktail that's enjoyed the world over.
