I am so excited to share this Grapefruit and Thyme Bourbon Smash with you today, just in time for the weekend! I’ve had the idea for this cocktail floating around my head for many months, and I finally got it out of my brain and into the glass! The “smash” is a family of cocktails that are very easy to make and totally customisable. There are many differing views on how the loose the definition should be, but in my opinion all it needs to do is follow the formula of a seasonal fruit, a sweetener and a herb.  These are muddled, or smashed, together – hence the name. You can either just use the fruit to garnish or you can mix fruit juice with the spirit you are using. And you can use pretty much any spirit you like, whiskey, I believe, is the traditional spirit of choice – but the Smash has so many variations, you’re truly free to use what you like and still call it a Smash!

Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays, and we don’t even have it in the UK! But any holiday that is primarily about eating a lot of delicious food and being thankful for all the good in your life is my kind of holiday! There are so many yummy traditional Thanksgiving foods that I love, but the dessert course is always my favourite, shocking I know! Pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, pecan pie… all the pies! I think that’s why it’s so easy to overeat on Thanksgiving, everything is too good, you just have to try a bit of everything! Or is that just me?!
