June is here, so I am making the start of the “summertime” months official. We are ringing this in with a fruity and refreshing Mango Rita. Delicious!
Make a simple syrup using 1 cup honey and 1/2 cup water. Add 1/4 cup of fresh spearmint and crush with a muddler or wooden spoon. Allow the syrup and mint to sit overnight in the refrigerator. Remove the mint the next day before mixing with the bourbon. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint in each glass.
Option: Mix with sparkling water for a more “gentle” drink.
