Sugar Plum Smash

Tito’s Sugar Plum Smash


• 1 whole sugar plum (pit removed), or other variety of sweet plum.

• 2 fresh mint leaves

• 1 1/2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka

• 1 oz tawny port wine

• 1/4 oz spiced honey syrup (see recipe)


In a cocktail glass, muddle the sugar plum and mint. Add remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Double-strain with a fine mesh strainer if you prefer. 

Spiced Honey Syrup recipe: 

1 cup of honey 

3/4 cup of hot water 

3-4 shavings of orange peel without the pith that are about 1 inch in width (They’re called horse-collar twists to the bar world. Use a peeler for these; its easier than a knife.) 

2 cinnamon sticks (3 inches long) 

15-20 whole dried cloves 

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, heat until mixture simmers, stir, turn off heat and let steep for two hours. Pour entire mixture into a glass bottle for storage and store in the refrigerator. Strain when adding syrup to a cocktail.

A delicious take on Jerry Thomas’ original bourbon/peach smash. 

Garnish: mint sprig

Mixologist: Max Hinojosa from Austin, Texas

Tito’s Handmade Vodka is distilled from corn and is certified GLUTEN-FREE.
