Cocktail of the Week: Tequila-Mint Smash

Cool and refreshing.  That's all I look for in a drink during these dog days of summer.  And if it's high-octane enough that I can sit an nurse it and not have to expend energy to mix another, all the better.  This one fits the bill nicely.

Tequila-Mint Smash
Makes one cocktail.

1 1/2 ounces añejo tequila
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
3/4 ounce agave syrup
6-8 fresh mint leaves
4 lemon wedges

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.  Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice.  Garnish with a mint sprig and enjoy.
