"The Vineyard Smash | Crafted Pour"

"Ready for a summer cocktail to carry you through the season? I got you today with this Vineyard Smash! This is a riff on a whiskey smash (whiskey, mint and lemon), subbing in Gin & Club Soda to keep things light and bubbly. Using the same guide - spirit, citrus, and herbs - this was the opportunity to play around with a great new ingredient, grape nectar. Its a low calorie, low sugar sweetener alternative from Domaine Sante. This stuff packs a fantastic grape punch that fits nicely into this cocktail. In the spirit of the original, I used a bourbon barrel aged citrus gin, red grapes (feel free use whatever variety you like), and rosemary to create a layered sipping cocktail that would be great on its on. This one gets elevated to patio status by topping it with club soda to lengthen the drink and give you those pleasant bubbles that carry the rosemary and lemon.
