Last night I made myself a Pink Smash to drink:
I’ve written about smashes before. A few times, in fact.

I know, I know… I write too much about the show “Best Bars in America” on the Esquire Network.
I said it last time though and once again this week, the show’s cocktails overlapped with what I’m mixing up in my personal life.
Case-in-point: The Whiskey Smash.
I just posted the other day about a smash I’d been making. And last night one of the guys got served a smash at a hotel bar.
Here’s the cocktail as it was served last night at Bemelmans Bar:
•Fresh Lime Juice
•Dash of Bitters
•Garnish with Mint
Last night’s episode was focused on hotel bars. The theme of next week’s episode will bedive bars.
