Shipwreck Cocktail

Shipwreck_CREDIT StuWe wouldn’t mind being marooned with this whiskey and rum cocktail in hand.

1 oz. bourbon
1 oz. aged rum
¾  oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
5 fresh mint leaves
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: mini highball, fizz or julep
Garnish: fresh mint sprig and 3–4 dashes Angostura bitters

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake to chill, then double-strain into a highball over crushed ice and garnish.
