Satsuma whiskey smash

In a cocktail shaker, combine the lemon wedge, 3 Satsuma wedges, 6 to 8 mint leaves, the whiskey and yacon syrup. Muddle all of the ingredients together, then shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with the remaining Satsuma wedge and mint sprig.

Adapted from a cocktail at Feed Body & Soul. Yacon syrup can be found at select health food stores and gourmet markets, as well as online.

If it’s entertaining, Jessica Gelt has likely covered it. Since joining the Los Angeles Times in 2003, she has written about television, music, movies, books, art, fashion, food, cocktails and more. She once played bass in a band with an inexplicably large following in Spain, and still gets stopped by fans (OK, maybe a fan) on the streets of Barcelona. She loves dive bars and very dry martinis with olives, though never simultaneously.
