Peach Whiskey Smash
The Whiskey Smash is a simple and easy drink to make. The great thing about this cocktail is that you can add your favorite fruit to make it the perfect concoction for your taste buds. For me, the mixture of mint, lemon, lime, and peach is the perfect combination to warm you up this winter.
This Peach Whiskey Smash is more refreshing (in my opinion) than the standard whiskey on the rocks. Even if you are initially turned away because you are not a whisky person, I would still highly recommend you give this cocktail a whirl. I typically do not love drinking whiskey, but I think this is one of my top 5 favorite drinks. You will not be disappointed with the recipe below.
