A Summer Garden Cherry Smash
- Let's make the ginger sugar. Combine the sugar, ginger, and thyme on a shallow plate. Rim your glasses in sugar, then fill with ice.
- Grab your cocktail shaker or glass jar, muddle the cherries, basil, thyme, and lemon juice. Give it a good squish, wanna get all the flavors muddled together. Add the bourbon or tequila, Cointreau, and vinegar. Fill with ice and shake, shake, shake!
- Strain into your glass, and top off with ginger beer. Add some fresh herbs and cherries for a pretty garnish.
