Everyone can use some spicy refreshment on a hot Memorial Day. Nothing says “Let’s kick off summertime” like a spicy cold whiskey cocktail. Fossil Creek Liquor came up with the idea of combining whiskey, and mint with cilantro and/or basil to usher in summer Memorial Day festivities with an authentic effervescent Texas cocktail recipe. Make it a day to remember!
Cocktail recipe for over 21 only. Please drink responsibly.
4 to 6 fresh mint leaves
sprig of mint, cilantro, basil or all of the above!

Muddle mint leaves and sugar in glass. Fill glass with ice and pour in the whiskey. Garnish with one or more of mint sprig, cilantro and basil. Drink and enjoy. Feel free to experiment with your garnishes. Serves 1. Please enjoy all alcohol based recipes responsibly (age 21 and over in Texas).
