Tito's Sugar Plum Smash!

Ingredients:
  • 1 whole sugar plum (pit removed), or other variety of sweet plum.
  • 2 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 oz Tito's Handmade Vodka
  • 1 oz tawny port wine
  • 1/4 oz spiced honey syrup (see recipe)
Method:
In a cocktail glass, muddle the sugar plum and mint. Add remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Double-strain with a fine mesh strainer if you prefer.


Spiced Honey Syrup recipe:

1 cup of honey
3/4 cup of hot water
3-4 shavings of orange peel without the pith that are about 1 inch in width (They're called horse-collar twists to the bar world. Use a peeler for these; its easier than a knife.)
2 cinnamon sticks (3 inches long)
15-20 whole dried cloves

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, heat until mixture simmers, stir, turn off heat and let steep for two hours. Pour entire mixture into a glass bottle for storage and store in the refrigerator. Strain when adding syrup to a cocktail.

A delicious take on Jerry Thomas' original bourbon/peach smash.

Garnish: mint sprig
