Stone Fruit Smash - Thug Kitchen

There’s nothing wrong with a cold beer on a hot day but sometimes you’ve got to change shit up. Don’t let summer slip by without sipping on this refreshing son of a bitch. Plums, plucots, pluots, use whatthefuckever you can find. Any of these sweet ass stone fruits will work. Level up your libations, motherfucker.

Ingredients
2 plums or similar sized stone fruit
6 sprigs fresh thyme
4 ounces gin
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons agave or other liquid sweetener*
ice
splash of tonic or soda water**
Directions

Cut the plums up into bite-sized pieces. Leave the skin on, don’t overthink this shit. Thrown them in a jar or large glass with a lid. Add the tiny ass branches of thyme, gin, lemon juice, sweetener, and a handful of ice to the jar and throw on the lid. Shake the ever-living fuck out of it until the ice smashes the fruit pieces and everything looks banged to hell. Strain out all the big chunks of fruit and thyme and pour the remaining drink into some glasses over ice. Everything should be all plum colored and looking fancy.

You can drink this beautiful bastard as is but feel free to add a couple splashes of tonic if that’s you’re shit.

*If your fruit is sweet enough you can just leave this shit out. Do whatever tastes right to you.

** Optional but add this if you like your drinks to have a little less bite.
