Hustler Instructions

The Hustler is a classic cocktail that combines the flavors of citrus and mint with a kick of bourbon. This refreshing drink is perfect for those warm summer nights when you want something light and refreshing. The Hustler is a versatile cocktail that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of appetizers and entrees.

To make a Hustler, start by muddling a handful of fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a glass. This will release the aromatic oils from the mint and infuse them into the drink. Next, add a splash of fresh lime juice and a dash of simple syrup. Simple syrup is made by dissolving equal parts sugar and water together, and it adds a touch of sweetness to the cocktail.

After muddling the mint and adding the lime juice and simple syrup, fill the glass with ice and pour in 2 ounces of bourbon. Stir the ingredients together to combine the flavors and chill the drink. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a lime wedge, if desired.

The Hustler is a versatile cocktail that can be customized to your taste. You can adjust the amount of simple syrup and lime juice to make it sweeter or more tart. If you prefer a stronger drink, you can increase the amount of bourbon. Either way, the Hustler is sure to be a hit at your next gathering.

Best served in a Old-Fashioned Glass.
