Bourbon in the Jar, Kentucky Peach Smash Cocktail for Labor Day Brunch

On visits to New York, I noticed jars getting a second life as glasses (for water mostly) rather than heading for recycling bin.

Seems like they can be used to serve cocktails too at your Labor Day party. Beats using plastic cups for taste and earth sake.

Kentucky Peach Smash

In a shaker:

2 oz. bourbon,

1 oz P&M Lemon Sour Mix,

1 oz P&M Bellini Mix.


Shake/strain ingredients over ice.
