Our mint chocolate bourbon smash brings together two of our favorite flavors – chocolate and mint. Sure, we normally love mint in cocktails such as mojitos and mint juleps but there’s no denying that mint and chocolate are a great match everywhere. Just look at the candy aisle of the store to see all the great options for this duo, not to mention a certain famous Girl Scout cookie.

This drink uses a bit of fresh mint muddled into the bourbon and chocolate liqueurs. But the real minty punch comes from our peppermint flavored rim sugars. Not only does it add a festive sparkle for those holiday cocktails but every sip delivers a touch of sweetness and a touch of peppermint.
