This not-too-sweet concoction flavored with apricots and herbs is a nice change of pace for Mojito or Julep fans. The fruit gives the drink a fair amount of body, but it’ll also help you sip slowly and enjoy the lackadaisical days of summer. Pair this seasonal drink with a seasonal snack—try it with our zucchini bread.

What to buy: Look for ripe apricots, to impart as much flavor as possible. If apricots aren’t looking good, you can substitute 1 peach or nectarine.

This recipe was featured as part of our Summer Fruit Cocktails recipe gallery.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine the apricots, mint, Cointreau, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and muddle until the apricots are broken up but not pulverized.
  2. 2Squeeze the lemon into the shaker, add the whiskey, and fill three-quarters of the way with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds, strain into an ice-filled rocks glass, and serve.
