The sound of galloping hooves and the warmth of a spring day pair exceptionally well with this cocktail. However, we no longer have to be in Lexington to enjoy this fine beverage.
This famous Kentucky Derby cocktail balances the sweetness of a Kentucky Bourbon with a refreshing mixture of mint and simple syrup.
Ingredients :
  • 2 Ounces Bourbon
  • 6-8 Mint Leaves
  • 1/4 Ounce of Simple Syrup
  • Crushed Ice
  • Mint to Garnish

Directions :

  •  In a copper or recommended Julep Cup muddle the mint leaves alongside the simple syrup
  • Add Bourbon
  • Fill the glass with crushed ice and stir till the glass is frosty
