The 2011 Kentucky Derby is nearly upon us. Even if you can’t make it to the races, celebrate in style at home with a classic Mint Julep.
If you’re feeling especially adventurous, try a twist on the classic cocktail recipe, like the Ginger Julep.
6-7 mint leaves
3 dashes Fee Bros Peach Bitters
½ oz simple syrup
¾ oz Domaine de Canton
1¾ oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon
Mint sprig, for garnish
Muddle lime and mint gently until bruised. Add rest of ingredients, ice and shake well. Strain into julep cup with crushed ice. Garnish with fresh mint sprig.
