McCocktail of the Month: Ex-Pat

McCocktail of the Month: Ex-Pat

I hope you’ve been enjoying the McCocktail of the Month as much as I have! Last month’s Business with Pleasure seemed to have been well received, with a surprising number of people coming back for seconds. I was, however, shocked by the number of people who were turned off by the fact that the drink was gin-based. What’s not to love about gin!? For all those skeptics, go to your local cocktail bar and order a Bee’s Knees. Simply delicious.

This month, I’m taking things deep into crowd-pleasing territory with the Ex-Pat, courtesy of Lauren Schell and Vito Dieterle of Little Branch. It’s a bit of a riff on a Bourbon Smash, but swaps out lemon juice for lime juice, adding a touch of extra bitterness, as opposed to lemon juice’s sour profile. The muddled mint makes for a pretty accessible drink on a hot day.

Remember, it’s first come, first serve, and I only make 50 servings. So, if you’re not in HK’s in the first twenty minutes of Happy Hour, assume you missed out!

 Recipe for the Ex-Pat:

2 oz Bourbon

1 oz Lime Juice

¾ oz Simple Syrup

2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

Handful of Mint

Combine all ingredients in a shaker, muddle the mint, shake with ice and double-strain. Garnish with a mint sprig.
