We combined Boar Creek Appalachian whiskey with Belle Isle coffee moonshine since whiskey and coffee go together well, then added the amaro for complexity.
This cocktail is a simple whiskey smash with very little added to it.
2 oz Boar Creek Appalachian Whiskey
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
5 drops Woodland Bitters
5-8 mint leaves 1 lemon wedge
In a rocks glass, muddle the mint and lemon wedge with a light sprinkle of raw sugar. Add the whiskey, simple syrup, and bitters. Add ice and top with soda water. Roll the drink in a shaker and garnish with a lemon wheel.
