Honey Plum Smash Cocktail

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Just what this sticky summer day needs...a fruity cocktail straight off the grill.  (Grill you say? Oh yeah.)  Remember that grilled peach bourbon we made a while back?  Well it's time to make some cocktails!  Ever since the grilled peaches I've become a liiiitle obsessed with grilling fruits and playing with flavors.  Not too girly, a little smoky flavor...this little guy might be my new favorite.
:: You'll Need ::
2 plums, cut into wedges, plus wedges for garnish
6 ounces bourbon (try my grilled peach bourbon recipe here!)
4 ounces dry vermouth
2 ounces fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 ounces honey
grilled lemon slice for garnish

:: What You Do ::

Grill plums until lightly charred over medium-high heat.  Let cool
Muddle 2 plums in a large pitcher until mashed.  Add bourbon, vermouth, lemon juice, & honey then fill pitcher with ice.  
Strain into glass filled with ice. (Discard solids.) Garnish with plum wedge & lemon slice.
