Fig, Rosemary, and Bourbon Smash

Greetings! Here is a delicious and easy recipe for a cocktail when you are in the mood for bourbon smash, but want something a little different. Of course, feel free to try different fruits that are in season and, if you would like, pair them with your favorite herbs that complement the specific fruits. I have made these with peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums and cherries and they are all so very enjoyable!
