About The Whiskey Smash Cocktail

Like Mint Juleps? You’ll love the Whiskey Smash, a citrusy 19th-century cooler. It was created by legendary bartender Dale DeGroff at the Rainbow Room in New York. DeGroff calls the citrus-and-mint combination the perfect cocktail for those who say they’ll never drink whiskey.
