Pepper Smash Number 2

Pepper Smash_CREDIT John VallsA smash typically forgoes a formal recipe, and this version combining aquavit, mint and a splash of earthy bell pepper sweetness is equally adaptable to your own tastes.

12 mint leaves
2 oz. aquavit
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. fresh yellow bell pepper juice
3/4 oz. diluted Grade B maple syrup (2 parts syrup to 1 part water)
Tools: muddler, shaker, strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: fresh mint sprig

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and gently muddle. Add ice, shake, double strain and garnish.
