Bourbon Peach Smash

Here's a cocktail that Shelley dug up.  I can't recall where, but we made a few minor modifications.  This is fantastic during peach season (July–September).

1 serving

Dice half a peach and add to a shaker.

Add 5 mint leaves.

Add fresh sliced ginger (1 cu. in.).

Add 1oz mint simple syrup.

Muddle until soft, then add ice to the shaker.

Add 3 dashes of angostura bitters.

Add 1.5oz bourbon.

Shake, then strain into a highball glass filled with ice.

Top with ginger ale and gently stir.

Garnish with a mint sprig.
