Cherry Smash

A refreshing riff on the classic Whiskey Smash, and favorite in the Egg Harbor tasting room, this boozy libation showcases our Hatch Fellowship Bourbon alongside local tart cherries, mint, and fresh lemon juice.

Featured Spirit: Hatch Bourbon Whiskey

Not too sweet, not too sour, and just the right amount of bourbon. Aged for 3 years, and made from both locally grown grains and cold-hardy varieties grown by our Northern Minnesota brethren, Hatch Fellowship Bourbon is a well-balanced, high-rye style, perfect for sipping or mixing alike. 


  • 2 oz Bourbon 
  • ¾ oz Cherry and Mint Syrup 
  • ¾ oz Lemon Juice 
  • 2 dashes Cherry Bitters

Cherry Mint Syrup: In a vacuum-sealed, food-safe bag or mason jar, combine 1 C tart cherry juice and 1 C sugar. Add ½ C chopped, fresh mint. Steep in an immersion circulator (sous vide method) at 140F for at least 2 hours. Make sure the sugar and water are evenly mixed, and then let cool. Strain and bottle. Syrup should keep for around two weeks if refrigerated. In a shaker tin, combine all ingredients, and then add ice. Shake vigorously for 20 - 30 seconds and strain into a small rocks glass with a large ice cube. Garnish with a large sprig of mint, a lemon, and cherry.
