Information

Smashes are known for their refreshing quality -- generally heavy on fruit and ice compared to other classes of cocktail, giving them a certain flexibility: you can dress one up for a summer afternoon or an autumn night equally well. Imbibe has a great piece on the history of the smash; for this Rye Smash, we recommend tinkering with the potency of the beverage to find your ideal level.
